29 - 30th June South West Permaculture Convergence. 2 day gathering
for people interested and involved in permaculture across the region.
If people want to come early to help prepare the event or if they want
to hang around afterwards to do some voluntary work at Blagdon that's
fine. We'ed like to make this a really big event and people
from all over are welcome to attend.
A series of Wetland Ecosystem Treatment (WET System) Courses
