Garden toolsIW Permaculture

Monthly Meeting

Saturday 7th June
10:30 -12:30ish

Do come along – its free and friendly.

Isle of Wight Permaculture has had monthly meetings in Porchfield, Shorwell, Noke Common & Shanklin in recent months, this Saturday we will be helping Rowan in Ventnor with her weed-filled back garden. It should cheer everybody up to see how bad it is! But there are also lots of good edible and/or useful plants to see, mostly trees and shrubs, so it’s not all grass and bindweed. It is a ‘bring loppers and secateurs’ day, as she wants to clear out some very overgrown Lonicera nitida hedging and get clearing for her veg patch.

You can come along offer encouragement and chat, the work is not compulsory!

If you need the address or directions please contact:
