London Permaculture Festival – what a great day!

London-Permaculture-Festival-2016-Montage400

Over 700 people braved the transport challenges on Sunday 31st July and attended workshops, browsed the stalls market, ate cake from the festival tea and cake stall and met Bunty and her chicks. The weather was just right and kids played in the garden, getting their faces painted, learning about mini-beasts and making felt balls. It was a wonderful day – stimulating, fun and friendly! Thank you to everyone who helped make the festival possible: speakers, stall holders, volunteers, and of course, attendees!
