We are aiming to grow some plants for sale and to plant out in neglected areas, but have run out of pots for sowing seeds… If you are coming to the Quay theatre on Tuesday 19th to hear the lovely Dan Wheals and you have some small and medium plant pots going spare, please bring them along! Thank you!
Please note that the Permaculture walk and talk is, of course, Tuesday 16th August! Apologies to those who have booked already.
The Apricot Centre
Walk and talk on permaculture for gardens.
Tuesday, 16 August
10:00 – 12:30
Marina O’Connell, who runs the farm, has offered to take us for a wander round the farm and garden. Marina will explain the principles of permaculture and how they can be applied practically in a garden setting. We will then go inside for a discussion and to ask any questions.
Marina keeps things informal and practical – and we hope to get some ideas for re-planting and developing the Quay car-park.
….and the visit is FREE!
As the farm is part of the DEFRA funding scheme, we will need a minimum of six people to confirm booking – please confirm by leaving a comment in the comments section of the blog. Closer to the time we can organise car shares and arrange set-off times.
*Permaculture is the design of more sustainable environments
using nature as inspiration. By observing and learning how
wonderfully productive eco-systems can be, we can learn from
this and consciously design our own gardens, lives, farms
and environments to work with nature. To be sustainable in
caring for the earth, natural resources and the people whose
lives the systems touch upon, and to be fair and equitable,
returning rather than retaining surpluses.
