Permaculture Action, weekend workshops

@Llanfyllin Workhouse, led by Sector39

Permaculture Action Weekend Workshops
Due to the popularity of the PDC Non Residential Course field trips to Llanfyllin Workhouse over the years, S39 is now hosting the following Action Weekends:
  1. September 7, 8, 9th
  2. November 30th – Dec 2nd
  3. April 13, 14, 15th.
The Weekends will provide all previous PDC members from the residential and non-residential courses the opportunity to:
  • Reconnect with Permaculture Principles and utilise them in a practical way
  • Reunite with course colleagues and meet new ones from other groups
  • Follow the progress and development of the project through the changing seasons and years
  • Practice skills, learn new ones and engage purposefully in a positive way in nature
  • Spend time with like-minded people, share stories and information in a social setting
  • Move from thinking to doing building confidence and experience by engaging with a developing site

The Action Weekend is £25 per person per night and includes Dinner, Bed and Breakfast at the Bunk House.

 

Lunches are not included but there are numerous places to go for midday meals in Llanfyllin as well as the option to have Lunch together on the Sunday at an additional cost of £10.00 per person. Participants are welcome to bring along any produce or beverages they wish to consume or share during Dinner and Breakfast at the Workhouse.
Depending on the response to these residential weekends, we may organise future larger scale events at the Workhouse such as a Harvest Party or Solstice Celebration to encourage our Permaculture Community to connect, grow and hopefully blossom into the future!

The Workhouse is a community owned historic building that literally used to be a poor house. Part of it is now a bunkhouse and its a fun place to stay for a weekend with a group of 10 -15 people.
