New Llandrindod Permaculture Students

Over the weekend of 12th and 13th September, the Llandrindod Transition Town group held a course introducing the principles of Permaculture Design.  The course was led by Steven Jones and Abi Price of Sector39.  Steve has been involved in Permaculture since 1991 and has worked on projects in the UK, Africa and India, and with the Centre for Alternative Technology between 1995 and 2002. He writes an eco-blog for Channel 4 and has just finished filming a 6-part documentary with BBC Wales on Going Green to be broadcast this autumn.  Abi works with the Transition Town group in Machynlleth and in particular with community gardening.  Over a packed weekend, they did a brilliant job of introducing the fundamental concepts of Permaculture to the 18 participants.
