I went along to this as a new member of this virtual group and had such a lovely day. Really fun infomrative practical workshops and inspiring speech from Maddy from Permaculture magazine – unfortunately missed Chris Johnstones but will now buy his book. From a place of often feeling overwhelmed about how life is I am feeling more hopeful through being linked in to a proactive creative force in the name of permaculture and Bristol is so great to be living in to action this stuff. On way home I was pushing (!) my bike up hill and I stood and looked at two ash trees bursting with seeds waiting to spread their abundance over the St Werburghs valley and beyond backed by a beautiful sky. May all beings realise their connection to life and take part in the great turning xx
