The Apricot Centre & Permaculture

The Apricot Centre

Manningtree

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.

  1. Could I please book two places, for my husband Graham and myself, for the permaculture talk on 15 August.
    Thanks Kate Allsopp
