May Meeting Guest Speaker – George Jonkers “Permaculture”

Introduction to George Jonkers to run a workshop on Permaculture.

George introduced Permaculture as a farming system adapted to a garden. He outlined his workshop plan which was to divide the audience into 10 groups with different scenarios. These were explained in the information on the tables. Also to be found was the Principles of Permaculture, and paper to design the garden outlined in the scenario.

The main focus on the evening was the group session and George walked around advising groups. The room had a working buzz of noise.

To finish George hoped we had enjoyed the exercise and regretted he did not have sufficient time to go through the Principles more closely as there was a wide range of experience amongst the group. He collected the designs from the groups and it is hoped he might feedback what he thought of these at a future date. Each participant was given a certificate of attendance.
