Cornwall

On route to Cornwall we visited the Eden Project.  It’s incredible and well worth the visit.  Sitting on the site of a disused clay quarry it’s demonstrates the power of regeneration in only 12 years.  I am somewhat dubious about their energy usage but they are displaying an incredible amount of learning material.  It seems they will soon be building a large geothermal power plant.  We also visited friends in Cornwall.  Living in a small yurt community and studying renewable energy at Falmouth Uni is a nice combination.  On leaving Cornwall we ended up in Somerset and the first stop was Burrowhill Cider!

PDC at The Patch

The middle of June saw The Patch host it’s first PDC with Richard Perkins coming to teach in his unique style.  The yurt went up, the kitchen was built, the library installed and before we knew it there was more than 2o people pitched up for the next 3 weeks.  It was an incredible learning experience and one I was very glad to be part of.  Details of the internship to follow…
