we arrived late for the festival and were put into a holding carpark.it turned out to be a good thing as the rest of the site was very muddy.
so we slipped throught the gate and, wandered into the mud. the first two days was weird for me, getting grounded.
OK the good bit: a landscpae of excited, adventurous folk, on the frounteer of good living and having a good time. i really liked the permaculture field, and not just for the permacultured women folk, no it was very informative, biodeisel and gardeners question time.
the music was great . "Seize the Day" good my blood pumping in a good way, and the whole vibe left me ienvigourated and hopeful. theres more .
bicycly powered sound systems, big bonfires, fire dancing, saunas, the craft field.
all so good, it is pretty big these days, a small poney would have helped.
anyway i cgot some advice on running a permaculture course and would like to do so at the "river garden" in sept.
keep on keeping on matt
