Final Permaculture Design Course weekend #6

The final PDC weekend took place on the weekend of 5/6th of August 2017 at Garden Cottage, where our three sub-groups presented their designs.

Saturday 5th

First up was John and Morticia with their ‘Stirlingshire golf course permaculture boundary’. John managed to obtain footage of a drone flyover of their site! Morticia Skyped-in from home. A great project, excellently delivered.

After lunch we presented our ‘Lion’s Gate Interactive Permaculture Garden’ – which seemed to go down well too.

Sunday 6th

Graham cooked us all a personalised breakfast. Delicious start to the day.

After breakfast Paul delivered his and Conni’s ‘Guerrilla Gardening’ in Tottenham, North London. An inspiring and radical approach to permaculturing urban waste-ground.

We then had lunch and everyone gave a bit of themselves to the group. There were songs, stories, poems, limericks and games.

We then tied things up and said our goodbyes.

A wonderful experience with some truly fantastic people.
