Chelsea Fringe Permablitz Day: Co-gardening with Nature

Saturday 3 June 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

For this permablitz that is part of the Chelsea Fringe, we will be at Cecil Sharp House Permaculture Learning and Demonstration garden inspired both by permaculture ethics and principles as well as by the folk adage: ‘One for the birds, one for the bugs, and one for me.’ We will be planting a variety of unusual decorative and edible perennials; establishing a half-barrel pond with edible plants, and adding late season flowering plants for bees and butterflies. The day will include short workshops on: ‘co-gardening with nature – combined with garden tour’ (12 noon); ‘adding a small pond to your urban garden’ (3pm). You are welcome for the whole event or to just drop in for a part of the day.

Cecil Sharp House is the home of the English Folk Dance and Song Society. The permaculture garden is maintained by volunteers through a Gardening with Nature training; holds regular permaculture design sessions; and works with the local primary school offering the garden as an outdoor classroom. There is an in-house café. It is open to the public throughout the year. In 2016 it won a Camden in Bloom 1st prize. The judges praised the diversity of plants, the care of the soil, the creative application of agroforestry principles and the way that the garden involves a wide range people.
