Permaculture Picnic Sun 19 Sept

Constable Community Allotment and Transition & Permaculture Hull are having a permaculture picnic to celebrate the European Day of Sustainable Communities (https://communitiesforfuture.org/sustainable-communities/) and we invite you to join us on Sun 19 September 2021 at Constable Community Allotment from 1pm. 

It so happens that the 19th of September is International Talk Like a Pirate Day (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Talk_Like_a_Pirate_Day) and you are more than welcome to come dressed as pirates and practice your ‘Ahoy me hearties’ to your heart’s content.

We will be providing some food to share and you can choose either bring some additional food to share, or if you prefer, bring a personal picnic lunch. There will be some chairs, though families might prefer to bring picnic blankets.

Lausanne can give a tour of the allotment to those who would like one. It will be possible to see how the site is developing, discuss the use of permaculture in its design and hear about future plans.

We hope you will be able to join us for a relaxing, sociable afternoon. Ideally we’d prefer if you could let us know you’ll be coming (Lausanne 07816 141169) . If you aren’t able to let us know in advance, please feel free to come along anyway.
