Help launch Permaculture Cymru!
An invitationfrom Andy Goldring,
CEO, Permaculture Association
We are inviting Permaculture practitioners in Wales to help us launch Permaculture Cymru, the Association's new network in Wales. Whether you are a member of the Permaculture Association, an ex-member, or an active Permaculture practitioner, we'd love to see you at Sych Pwll near Llandrinio, Powys on May 14th 2011.
It’s a one-day event, but for anyone that is traveling from afar and needs to stay over, there is camping on site for Friday and Saturday nights (£8/adult/night) and a range of lovely nearby B&Bs.
We are asking for a £10 contribution from adult attendees, and this includes a lunchtime bowl of soup. Please bring food to share to turn a simple meal into a celebration feast. Other meals will also be available on a pay as you go basis.
After the official day programme informal evening fun will be supplied by you and a local band that have offered to play, so for everyone that can, stay for the evening and get to know other people working in your network.
Children are very welcome, and we will supply an art activity tent, but we will not be able to supply child minding, so children will remain the responsibility of parents at all times. The site has a no dog policy.
10.00 Welcome – to the site, the area, and the event.
10.25 Getting to know each other – networking by topic and region
11.00 Introduction to the Permaculture Association and current activities
12.00 Permaculture Cymru proposal overview, questions and electing the first committee
12.45 Launch of Permaculture Cymru (outside if weather permitting!)
2.30 Open space – sessions to explore future work and opportunities for Permaculture Cymru
5.30 Close of official programme
We are seeking interest from people that have time, skills and enthusiasm to help move Permaculture Cymru forward. There are opportunities to work on the committee, and also to volunteer for specific areas of activity and research. Please read the proposal on the website for more info. We also welcome workshop proposals for the afternoon Open Space. Please try to base workshop proposals on the Permaculture Cymru proposal.
If you want to attend, it is vital that you book in advance and tell us you are coming. Please do not just turn up. You can let us know you’re coming by clicking the following link:
