We hear from Lauren Simpson about plans for the Ecological Land Cooperative Summer Gathering & AGM taking place on 14th July on the beautiful Gower Peninsula. It’s a fantastic opportunity for friends and supporters to meet the ELC team and learn more about their work. Over to Lauren from here.
Join us at the ELC Summer Gathering on 14th July!
With new land sites in development and new worker, steward and investor members joining us, the last 12 months has been a period of exciting growth and change for the Ecological Land Cooperative. To celebrate we’ve decided to organise a summer gathering of friends and supporters to coincide with our AGM on Saturday 14th July.
Expect a fun, informative and inspiring day on one of the most beautiful coastlines in Britain, the Gower Peninsula near Swansea in South Wales, eating good local food and spending time with likeminded folk. You don’t need to be an ELC member to come along, just someone who’s interested in our work, would like to meet our team and find out more about how the ELC is run.
Our third land site, Furzehill on the Gower Peninsula, is a short distance away from both the famous Three Cliffs Beach and local CSA Cae Tân, a brilliant community food growing project who are leasing our fields and helping us to host the event. The day will kick off with a tour of Cae Tân, continue with a delicious lunch before the AGM itself and conclude with a catered BBQ on Three Cliffs Beach. Camping on Saturday night is available but numbers are limited.
The event is free to members but for non-members we’re asking for £10 for lunch & dinner, and £10 for camping.
For more information and to book your place, send an email to [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you there!
