A good year for Sector39
It has been the busiest ever year for Permaculture and there is lots going on, so I have been prompted to produce the first Sector39 Newsletter.
You can read about an opportunity to see the famous Reading roof garden to celebrate its 10 year anniversary, and find out about an anticipated apprenticeship scheme for PDC graduates.
Please use the link below to download the Sector39 news bulletin, including news on upcoming Fandango Farm weekend mini Permaculture festival, courses and more, 17-19 August (with discount for PDC grads).
Clay oven building event
Steve and Irene Evison have recently launched a fantastic new Exploration venue at Underhill Farm, right on the Welsh border between Llanymynech and Pant, seeking to provide opportunities for people of all ages to explore and enjoy the world around them.
Underhill will be running a variety of courses and holiday activities.
The first course, on July 14th and 15th will be a two day family course building a clay oven and finishing up making a pizza.
The Presteigne Food Trail - a review
Was it a good day out? Presteigne Food Trail – Saturday 16th June 9am-9pm The day was full of food and happy faces even though showers were a permanent fixture of the proceedings. It seems as though all of Presteigne was involved in making the day go with a swing from the clock tower giving a bird’s eye view of the town (which has certainly grown) to the allotment tours which made you ask “what do they use to aid keeping the snail and slug population off their veggies?”
Tools for Self Reliance relies on You!
TFSR Cymru: what we do
The main work of Tools for Self Reliance Cymru is aimed at enabling African artisans and their families to help themselves build a better and more prosperous life.
