Next AGC conference to be held in a passiv house barn in West Yorkshire

25 May 2018

The beautiful rolling countryside of West Yorkshire and a converted barn on a community farm is next summer's AGC conference venue.

 

Camping is available free on site for those with tents and there will be limited accommodation with local members or at hotels in town. (See bottom of screen for more detail)

The Stirley Community Farm, run by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, has been supported by our Green councillors on Kirklees Council and the barn in which we will hold sessions and have our meals has won awards for its retrofit to Passiv haus standards.

The conference takes place from noon on Friday 6th of July to Sunday 8th July.    

For those able to arrive early on Friday, meet Green councillor Andrew Cooper at Huddersfield train station at 2pm for a tour/pub crawl of the town  (your baggage will be ferried to the venue). There will be a welcome meal at a local community run eaterie on Friday evening and then a series of seminars, talks and workshops in the Stirley farm barn on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday night there will be live musical entertainment.

If you book now the early bird reduced price is £20 for paid up AGC members and £30 for non AGC members (plus a small charge for Eventbrite to handle the bookings).
