Infoseeders and Forest Volunteers akin.
If you have any ideas for workshops that you would like to run by us, or want to book one in please get in touch via the mailing list:
Hopefully this will help avoid clashes with other activities and help us remember to tidy-up/set-up in good time. (In theory!
