At the Leeds Permaculture Network social on Wednesday I ran my first session. In spite of having been a teacher for 25 years, I was a little nervous about running a workshop in this environment.
In the event, the people who had come along seemed to gain as much as the Network hopefully has. And of course, it was a boost to my confidence.
Guerrilla gardening, urban farming and permablitzing was the theme and now perhaps we have the foundations for such a project of our own.
The ideas on the post-it notes in the above photo were generated by discussion in the form of a World Cafe. Participants are divided into groups, each with a difffernt question. A scribe writes down the group’s ideas. Then all but the scribe move to different groups to discuss the other questions.
