Ken's Land June 08

Ken’s Land June 08

The next Ventnor Permaculture Meeting on Sunday May 17th 10:30am – 12:30pm will be hosted by Ken at his land in St Lawrence.

He could do with some help weeding or you can just admire some of his weird and wonderful, unusual plants as well as the large selection of more conventional ones.  It is just over a year since Ken started renting this land which was just a grass covered field, it will be interesting to see the changes.

If you live in the Ventnor area and are interested in growing your own food or flowers do come along and join us. It is free and friendly and their is no obligation to come every month or do any work, you can just pick our brains if you want.

Bring along any plants or seeds to swap. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
