A productive garden in Doncaster

I am running a project with DART (Doncaster COmmunity ARts) which involves working with a cross generational group to create a productive garden at the Point (DART"s home) as part of a three month project called A Patch of Ground exploring people's ecological identities and relationships to the natural world.

 

We would like to invite Permaculture folk in the Doncaster area who hopefully will be interested in being involved. We ran this project with the Bluecoat in Liverpool last year and the garden in particular was a real point of communication and learning for people.

Opportunity type: 

Speaker for our group in Kent please!

Our group meets on the 2nd Monday of each month and we are looking for someone to speak for about 1 hour at one of our monthly meetings in 2011. 

We are interested to hear about the practice of permaculture and how it can help us manage our gardens especially in relation to climate change. 

We are happy to pay a fee and travelling expenses if you have a speaker available in the Kent area.

 Please contact if you can help.
