The May meeting of Transition & Permaculture Hull will take place
Mon 14 May from 7.30 pm
Constable Community Allotment, Hull HU3 3DF
Come and see the developments on the allotment, including the site of the roundhouse which is to be built this year. See how the space has been transformed from a derelict field to a productive growing area with raised beds, polytunnels, flowers, fruit, vegetables and herbs. We hope you will see examples of permaculture in practice.
We will spend some time discussing a couple of the permaculture principles in some detail, over hot drinks. (You can make your own herbal teas from herbs growing on the site.) Hopefully there will be a mix of people who know a lot about permaculture and those who wish to learn a bit more.
If the weather is poor we can shelter in the polytunnel. Hope to see you on Monday
