Intro to Permaculture

18 & 19 January 2020

A weekend course learning from natural systems to help us to create beautiful, functional spaces and design our lives in turbulent times.


During this weekend course, we will be learning to design our future based on the three ethics of:

  • Caring for the Earth

  • Caring for People

  • Fair distribution of surplus.

This is a friendly, interactive course - no death by PowerPoint.

Bee Keeping Club

Thursday Evenings

In Evington we have three beehives that are in a netted area so that you can observe in safety.

Bees can be kept anywhere, from country orchards to urban gardens to small city balconies. It is a common misconception that you need a large garden or countryside nearby. Although this can make siting your bees easier, urban gardens are arguably better. Nectar and pollen can be gathered from a wide variety of plants.

The Bee Club will start again in the spring when the bees are active.
