Saturday 11th June, 10am – 5pm


Cecil Sharp House, Camden

Come and join us for the second of a series of permablitzes to establish a showcase permaculture LAND project at Cecil Sharp House.

Cecil Sharp House, a grade II listed building, is the home of English folk dance and song society which generously hosts the annual London Permaculture Festival. We have established an awarding winning low maintenance, decorative, ecological and edible design for their permaculture garden highlighting the soil-food-web, permaculture guilds and edible perennials while creating a variety of wildlife habitats.

This permablitz will focus on planting permaculture guilds with a particular emphasis on bee and butterfly plants, installing a pond with edible plants, planting up two green roofs, putting up trellises and planting climbers as well as adding a soaker hose irrigation system.

RSVP Essential: if you want to come along you need to let us know so we know numbers and we can give you all the specific details. Contact us here
