1PM-2PM: lunch <---not a workshop, just some good tasty skipped food!

2PM onwards: land scouting workshop. <---- going out and about looking for derelict land, followed by a discussion about things to think about when identifying and selecting land for low impact communities in the urban environment.


Also this Saturday from 12 Noon, there will be the weekly Permaculture session at Kew Bridge which will involve planting vegetables, designing growing areas and much more.
