Flanagans Fields Community Garden has been run by volunteers and gardeners from the local community for the last seven years. This garden is a great example of how community can benefit from urban greening and the regeneration of urban land. It has become a living site for experimentation, education and community gathering with an ever growing number of collaborators, volunteers and gardeners generously contributing their time, knowledge and passion.
‘Permaculture gardening goes far beyond ‘landscaping’ or maintaining a vegetable plot. In an urban context it works to integrate the abundant resources of people and community, city ‘waste’ streams, unique micro-climates, and more, with growing healthy and nutritious food locally, creating art and celebration, and building community in ways that are environmentally regenerative- providing refuge for pollinators (and humans!), contributing to air quality, responsibly collecting and using rainwater and so on, and on top of that, are beautiful too!’
In this workshop you will learn the nuts and bolts of a permaculture approach: the patterns and principles drawn from natural eco-systems which help us to design our own productive, functional, resilient and creative spaces.
It will be useful to anyone with an active interest in environmental and productive urban gardening or landscaping in a private or community garden and in public spaces.
