Do you have a room for an IPCUK delegate?

Sponsored delegates are coming from all over the world to the London Permaculture Conference & Convergence this September, and we need to find them somewhere to sleep! The more we house, the more money saved to get even more delegates over. Also, it’s a great way to welcome these Permaculture activists & designers into our community and learn about their amazing work first hand. So if you live in or near London and have a spare bedroom for the nights of the 7th, 8th & 9th September email us at stefimker@hotmail.com with your phone no. and we’ll call you back to discuss details.
