Information Evening – Fermenting

Guest Speaker: Gillian Kozicki

Permaculture is a lifestyle choice – a way of thinking, being and designing; of living in harmony with your surroundings in an ecologically sustainable manner. As an approach to life, it is logical, practical and mimics natural systems.

Cultured Artisans focuses within this permaculture journey on the skills for preserving some of the produce from this lifestyle and enhancing their probiotic properties. In the process the byproducts include reducing waste, increasing health benefits and continuing to strengthen a sense of community.

Seed Bank being refilled

Our Seed Bank is open for trade

Working hand-in-hand with THEDIG is the clubs’ seed bank. Members are encouraged to bring surplus seeds as a contribution in exchange for 1 or 2 packets of seed of their choice from the seed bank. Please see Steve Smallbone before the information night ( 4pm – 7pm every 3rd Tuesday of the month ) for deposits and withdrawls. We are in need of a volunteer to assist Steve and to take reponsibility for seed bank management after the formal part of each information night.
