 Saturday 22nd  April –   Building a Wildlife Pond      11am - 3pm

Permaculture is all about creating habitat for wildlife to bring a balance to pests and predators – having a natural pond is a fundamental element for encouraging a natural diversity. Learn how to create a natural looking and sustainable pond to enhance your garden, plus other tips for providing food and habitat for wildlife generally. This workshop includes the theory and then some practice, helping to line and plant up a new pond at Foxfield. Price £25 per person (accompanied kids under 12 free) and includes a tour of Foxfield and a veggie lunch.
 

 Saturday 27th May –     Open Day     11am - 5pm    - FREE

Come and have a tour of all the permaculture happening at Foxfield LAND Permaculture Demonstration Centre and see how you could be making changes to live more positively. We have solar power, wood burning cooking, an electric car and various permaculture projects such as a self-watering polytunnel, no-dig vegetable garden, mini reed bed, wildlife ponds, chicken and duck forage garden, solar hot-tub and compost toilet. See permaculture in action and get some simple ideas to take away, and have a cup of tea and a slice of cake to make the day (donations to the Permaculture Association).

 

 Sunday  25th June –  Love Your Weeds!    11am – 3pm 

Weeds need not be our enemies in the garden. Many weeds are beneficial to the soil and surrounding plants, provide nectar for bees and butterflies, look lovely and are edible and medicinal for us too! Culturally we have been taught we are lazy gardeners if we have weeds – find out how to enjoy weeds, how to control them when necessary without chemicals or loads of effort, learn their culinary and medicinal  uses and feel much better about being a wild weed loving gardener!   Price £25 per person (accompanied kids under 12 free) and includes a tour of Foxfield and a veggie lunch.

 

                                    Site Visits and Tours

We can offer personal tours of Foxfield LAND Permaculture Demonstration Centre if booked in advance. There is a charge of £5 per person, which includes a personal explanation of the project designs and any questions answered. Most people visit for at least 90 minutes and we can put the kettle on for you too!
