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.

Ken's Garden

The November Ventnor Permaculture Meeting will be 10.30 as usual. It will be at my house, not St.Lawrence, as we will be pressing apples later, and it’s simpler to stay in one place.

There are a few things where I could do with some help, such as weeding, digging spuds if there are any, sorting out plants, maybe taking some cuttings, and preparing apples for pressing.

Apple PressThe October Ventnor Permaculture Meeting will be held at Ken’s house this Sunday 19th October at 10:30am. You are very welcome to come along and lend a hand or watch.

If you need directions phone: 01983 854968

We are going to have another go at pressing some apples for juice and cider, we think that we will have just about enough to make it worthwhile, especially if everyone that has promised apples brings them along.

We could probably do with someone bringing along a couple of clean washing up bowls and buckets, as we were a bit short of these last time and we should have more apples than last time.
