London Permaculture Festival 2017 (30th July)

I am happy to advise that the date of the 2017 London Permaculture Festival has been announced!

The annual event is always held at the Cecil Sharp House (home of the English Folk Dance Society) in Camden, North london.
There are workshops going on indoors and out, activities for everyone including families and children, you can usually purchase home made foods and drink with other things like an exotic / rare plant nursery which sell plants that are well suited to Permaculture design in that they have multiple functions ….

As I have mentioned in the past in previous posts (2015) and (2016),  there is an array of free workshops going on during the event and you have the opportunity to learn lots about Permaculture and alternative lifestyle or sustainability oriented changes.

The event will take place on Sunday the 30th of July and the entry fee remains the same at £6 normal entry and £4 for concessions, it runs from 11am to 6pm and all under 18 go in for free.

Take a look here at my report on the very fun and enjoyable London Permaculture Festival 2015 event

This is a family friendly event and there is too much to do, you simply cannot attend all of the workshops on that day, you are pretty much guaranteed to miss out on things unfortunately, one recommendation from me personally … DON’T FORGET YOUR NOTEBOOK!! < I did 😦
