Date: Weds 9th - Mon 14th Aug
Location: Colesdale Farm, Northaw Road West, Cuffley, Hertfordshire EN6 4QZ  (Trains from Finsbury Park/Hornsey etc)

It's described as: Five days of skill-sharing for grassroots ecological direct action - make links, share ideas, and get involved in the struggles against fracking, new roads and more.

It's organised on non-hierarchical lines and, although I'm sure daytrippers would be welcome, if you can stay over you'll get to appreciate the beauty of the morning meetings, the true pleasure of toilet cleaning by consensus and more.

The workshop programme hasn't been finalised but a list of proposed workshops can be found on the EF!SG website:

Even if environmental activism isn't your thing, there are a lot of workshops that are relevant to many people in or around HSG, e.g.
- Not seen, not heard: moving about in the dark without being detected. 
- How to do allyship / solidarity activism?
- Seeing beyond the crises: the role of speculative fiction
- Liberating Life: The Kurdish Women's Movement and Women All Around the World
- Ecology and autonomy: an anarchist midwife's view of birth

There is a lot more information on the site about cost, travel directions and accessibility.  So have a look.
