Workday 3: 17th June 2012

These seedlings have now become large tomato plants. Thanks to all who came along on Sunday. We had leek, onion and garlic soup. The greenhouse has been transformed into a workable and productive setting. Plots and projects are emerging. It’s all exciting. The strawberries are ready to eat. Pop along and help yourself.

We talked about the up-and-coming Permaculture course planned for Sept. We also talked about Human Ecology and several other topics.

The tutor is Sarah Pugh, who writes “I’ve run a course in this format for several years in Bristol and found it’s more accessible to many than a residential course. It’s also great for building an active local permaculture scene. Great local tutors and practitioners will be joining me to make the course even more exciting and informative.”
