Speaker - Cassandra Lishman of Lammas Ecovillage in Wales, UK. Sunday Dec. 10 from 2-4 pm

Freedom Makers Studio is hosting a presentation by Cassandra Lishman of Lammas Ecovillage in the Pembrokeshire Hills of Wales on Sunday Dec. 10 from 2-4 pm at the Studio. Refreshments will be available and the store will be open.

Lammas Ecovillage is a pioneering homesteading community in Wales that developed under the “One Planet Development” scheme that permits and encourages off-grid homesteads on farmland in Wales. Cassie will talk about the origins of the community and how the nine homesteads that are part of the ecovillage work towards self-sufficiency and sustainable livelihoods and building a cohesive community. Cassie is also a willow sculpture artist using many species of willows grown on her homestead. Please come to hear about this unique multi-age community and welcome her to our community of homesteaders, makers and sustainability leaders.

Freedom Makers Studio host Lissa Widoff lived with Cassie at Lammas during the summer of 2014 where she learned about dry stonewalling, cob roundhouses, willow lathe and plaster and how cold and windy it is in June on the Welsh coast.
