Peak Oil Ball & 1st workshop of the year

The Mayor's Peak Oil Ball drew a diverse crowd. Quiz Master Rick Tanaka, in his inimitable style, and team mate David Holmgren (below with Laurel and Gabe) brought a few more hidden facts to light.

Thank you to everyone who came and contributed to the fun of the evening and to the Mayor's Climate Change Fund.

The first workshop of the year will be held on January 13th at Melliodora and will be on creating a clay floor. The workshop will be lead by James Henderson and there will be only 6 places. There will be some preparation leading up to the day which will require participants to be available for a couple of hours during the week before the workshop day (TBA). Expressions of interest should be sent to HRN. More details to come.
