Shropshire & Edges Permaculture Network (SEPNET)

Shropshire & Edges Permaculture Network (SEPNET) offer hospitality and a tour of five varied & fascinating permaculture sites in and around beautiful rural Shropshire

Provisional Programme

SEPNET will host up to 12 people arriving on 16th Sept and staying for 5 nights.

Day 1 16th Wednesday.  Six people will stay at Pams Pools and the other six at Pennerley Permaculture and Forest Garden Plot. This first day will simply be spent settling in & relaxing.

Day 2 17th Thursday. The Pennerley group will travel to Pam's Pools Permaculture LAND Centre for the day to see that site & meet the other group. This is a semi self-sufficient permaculture and wildlife site.

Day 3 18th Friday. The third day both groups will visit Cwm Harry, a local social enterprise providing Permaculture related education and services for a tour and perhaps a permablitz work party in their grounds.

Day 4 19th Saturday. Both groups will visit Station Road Permaculture LAND Centre, a family home incorporating permaculture principles into a typical suburban back garden. There may also be the option of visiting another local LAND Centre - Haye Farm, a farm using permaculture principles to rear rare breed sheep and cattle and to manage extensive apple orchards.

Day 5 20th Sunday. The Pam's Pools group will visit Pennerley Permaculture Plot (also a LAND Centre) for the day, for a chance to see their forest garden and other permaculture features. The day will culminate in an evening party around a bonfire for both groups and further members of SEPNET, with offers of  entertainment welcome!

Day 6 21st Monday. Both groups will depart - probably back to London but possibly on a visit to the Centre For Alternative Technology in Mid Wales if they so wish.

Local permaculturalists are encouraged to join us any or every day - the more the better - so that we can all have plenty of time to socialise and exchange ideas with each other.
