In our outdoor urban space, no matter how small, we can reconnect and ‘switch on’, coming to an understanding of the intricate relationship of nature and ecology just outside our kitchen windows.

Are you interested in learning how you can implement permaculture design into your urban garden? Are you interesting in learning more about permaculture and its urban applications?

Please join us on Wednesday October 21st at 7PM for the screening of Urban Permaculture with Geoff Lawton. Refreshments, coffee and snacks will be served.
