Permaculture Scotland Gathering going North for 2018

We are currently looking for a venue in the North of Scotland for 2018, we have an option in mind but please get in touch if there's a place you'd like to recommend.


Could you host a PSWG meeting in January?

We are looking for a person(s)/venue to host a meeting in January in return for us helping you out for a couple of hours.

Who are we? The Permaculture Scotland Working Group's mission is to empower people to design thriving communities across Scotland, and contribute to permaculture worldwide. We are involvedin various projects including organising the annual Permaculture Scotland gathering, and coordinating the ScotLAND project.  We meet twice a year in person, and more frequently by teleconference.

What can we help with? Whatever you need help with! On our team of 6 includes Graham Bell, Lusi Alderslowe, Lesley Anderson, Beth Ramsay, Annie Casey and Lorraine Ishak. We could do a ScotLAND/diploma tutorial, build a compost bay, lead a workshop, build a herb spiral, clean your kitchen, listen to you telling us about how to improve permaculture access in your area, you tell us what you'd like...  Group involvement especially welcomed.

Where? South-East Scotland up to Fife, down to the border (we met in the West last time). Somewhere with good public transport connections, preferably train.

When? January (date tbc)
