Event Description

Come along and enjoy a day packed full of facts, fun and friends. Garden Cottage Coldstream, the oldest intentional food forest in Britain welcomes vistors once again for International Permaculture Day.

The garden is open from 10.30 for an 11am start with a full programme of events and guided tours  through to 4pm. Apple Day includes a complimentary lunch.

We ask for a donation of (minimum) £25 from all attendees.

Proceeds from the event are shared 50% with Friends of African Nursing, a charity which supports training of hospital nurses in Africa. See

Children are always welcome but must be accompanied by a responsible adult in whose care they remain. A donation of £5 per child is requested. When there is sufficient demand we may make some specific children’s sessions.

Dogs are not allowed in the garden, except guide dogs, though there are shaded areas to the front of the cottage where well-behaved dogs can be tethered.
