We were cut short by a hail storm and the interent going off. There is most of the lecture there however. Following on from this we began talking about our desgin tasks. We have split into two teams to explore how we can create morning permaculture learning opportunities at the farm and how we can link them to the academy.

The evening sessions was an exploration of using democratic processes as well as direct action to press for change towards the regenerative economy we so despearately need. We welxome Michael from XR Oswestry who gave a presentation and led the debate afterwards
