I’m pleased to be facilitating the following workshop on the award-winning The Railway Garden Project and urban permaculture strategies at The Art House in Southampton, hosted by Southampton Seed Swap.
Graham Burnett, author of ‘Permaculture a Beginners Guide’ and ‘The Vegan Book of Permaculture’ tells the story of how a derelict pub backyard in Southend on Sea was transformed into a urban green oasis on a shoestring budget.
Using Permaculture design principles and imagination, recycled waste materials and local community skills, within a few weeks the rubbish strewn yard at the back of The Railway was converted into a community garden producing fresh organic vegetables and providing therapeutic activity for local people with learning disabilities.
Graham explains how it was done, and how anybody can do the same in their own community.
