The first of our new monthly meetings at the North Bridge Inn (11 St David's Hill, Exeter) will take place on Tue 30th Nov - these evenings will consist of a talk or film followed by seed-swapping, browsing permaculture mags/books/resources, and generally catching up with other permie/organic folk from the Exeter area. It's a great independent local pub!

This first talk will be given by Chris Marsh who will give us an update on the wonderful Plants For A Future project.
