Back to All Events


Our monthly meetup, to share idea's, skills, seeds, and much more!

This month we welcome Bettina Maidment founder of Plastic Free Hackney to hear their plans to adopt a part of the canal. We will discuss how permaculture design and you could play a key part in the making of it.

Plastic Free Hackney
PFH is a campaign group aiming to eliminate single-use plastics in the borough. "We want to inspire and engage our local businesses, schools, community organisations, and the Council to reduce their reliance on single-use plastics."

We shall also be updated on plans for a new permaculture community garden in Hackney Downs at the Nightingale Estate and find out about Extinction Rebellions plan to overgrow the central London's Waterloo Bridge during International Rebellion next week, and how you can get planting at it!
