Off Grid.jpg

The date of the 2018 Off-Grid festival has been set, ticket sales are on and the organisers boast a larger site with about 50% higher capacity.

Previous events were held at Goffin’s Land, Exeter in Devon, now they have moved to Tapeley park, Christie Estates, Instow in North Devon. Click here for a Map of the area.

I first stumbled upon this event last year a mere week or so before the actual event! No money and not having enough time to prepare, as well as not being able to request in such short notice for holiday leave put an end to the possibility of going. I made sure that 2018 will be the year to attend and it seems like I will definitely be able to go, even if only for a day using their cheaper day pass tickets…

It looks like a great event especially for Children, giving them the opportunity to spend quality, fun time away from their phones, computers and tablets.

Switch off, tune in, turn on …

Below is more of the 2016 event and shows a little more including all of the entertainment side.

If one is interested in Off-Grid methods, even just out of interest sake or to learn a thing or two, take a look below at the extensive workshops list for each day from 2016, I can’t believe a 3 day event was just so jam packed ! ! !

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.
