Permaculture Day in the Waterworks…

Just a note to let you know about an upcoming Permaculture event happening in Belfast.

On the 1st October Phillip will host a practical permaculture day at the Grow Community Garden at the Waterworks, for anyone living or working in the area.

This day will have a strong practical theme, and may help to illustrate any information you have heard or read about Permaculture.

Permaculture Weekend 23/24 July






Permaculture Weekend 23/24 July

Laganvalley Permaculture’s two week Permaculture Design Course is unfortunately not going ahead this year, it seems there is not enough demand for a two week course as yet! We are sorry to disappoint those of you who were interested…

Graham Bell has kindly offered to visit Northern Ireland over the weekend of the 23/24 July to meet anyone interested in permaculture here, and to discuss how to go forward. This is a great opportunity to get the ball rolling for permaculture activism in NI, which is happening in countries as diverse as Angola, Palestine, Japan and the Ivory Coast. We be pleased to welcome anyone interested in finding out more, or anyone who already has a deep interest and involvement who would like to see the permie scene develop in NI. Everyone is Welcome!

We will be hosted at the Quarries farm, near Bangor               We are very grateful to Growing Connections for their hospitality, and look forward to seeing how they have applied permaculture principles on the farm.


There will be a small charge for the weekend to cover catering and venue costs. You can come along to both days, or come on the Saturday or Sunday, whichever suits you best. You can camp, stay nearby or just come for a day trip.

Please register your interest by mailing, and we can forward further information
