What do we do?
Were the green fingered folk at uni always keen to get down and dirty.
Everyone gets down staring at screens and books and we all need a break, If being outside rain or shine makes you happy then we're the society for you.
Permaculture can deepen our connection to nature that were so often disconnected from and help us find a passion for growing food that tastes better than anything you can get in a shop.
We hold regular movie nights showcasing permaculture and other interesting documentaries, there will be visits to local small holdings and organic gardens along with trips to explore the wonderful new forest and our local green places foraging for wild foods. We help look after the university food garden the local slades farm community garden. With more help we can make these places overflow with amazing food.
