The team at Permaculture Tywi are extremely proud to present one of the earliest pioneers of permaculture, Geoff Lawton, who was taught by the father of permaculture himself, Bill Mollison. This will be his ONLY major presentation in Wales this year. This will take place in Llandeilo Civic Hall on August 24th at 7pm.
Permaculture design principles are now widely seen as the methodology by which we can thrive in a world that is undergoing climate change. Issues such as food sustainability; water control in the landscape; capturing and storing energy and eliminating waste are addressed. The principles can be applied to an individual household or to a whole community. Central to permaculture are the three ethics: Earth care, People care and Fair shares.
Geoff is a world renowned consultant, designer and teacher in this field and will talk about his extraordinarily exciting work in the world of permaculture. He has worked worldwide on a vast range of projects, much of the time supporting people in devastated areas to regain a life using permaculture principles. In 1996 he was accredited with the Permaculture Community Services Award by the permaculture movement for services in Australia and around the world.
After the presentation the audience will have the opportunity to ask Geoff questions about his work AND about the role of permaculture in Wales.
Included in this gala event will be a delicious plant based supper using local foods where attendees will be able to have informal discussions about issues such as living sustainably and growing of food. Our visitors will also have the opportunity of meeting local food producers and fair trade providers on a range of stalls.
