London Permaculture Festival - an amazingly great stonking success : )
If you were lucky enough to join the 750 (ish) other people that came along to Cecil Sharp House on Sunday 14th July – you’d know that it was a blinder of a day. Fine weather shone upon the day full of workshops, stalls, films, storytelling, music and lots of cake. You can read a couple of blogs about it here & here and a short film made here. If you have photos or videos or blog posts of the event then please send them to us.
