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. International Permaculture Day includes a complimentary lunch using produce from the garden.
We ask for a donation of (minimum) £25 from all attendees. Proceeds from the event are shared 50% with Abundant Borders http://abundantborders.org.uk/ the charity we created with friends to tackle food poverty in our region.
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.
