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.

Hi Kate, as you may have noticed, we got the date slightly wrong – it’s Tuesday 16th, and not 15th. Hope that’s okay? And we’d be delighted to see you there!
Could I please book two places, for my husband Graham and myself, for the permaculture talk on 15 August.
Thanks Kate Allsopp
