Gary Hands

Gary from Kookaburra Organics has been an organic farmer in the region for over twelve years. He understands the climate in south east Queensland and he regularly shares his knowledge at workshop events.  Gary is a regular presenter at the Qld Garden Expo. Kookaburra Organics is a certified organic market garden with an online home delivery service servicing Brisbane CBD and suburbs, and the Sunshine coast every week.

Authentic and Clean – this is how real food should taste!  Every family deserves food grown with integrity and with appropriate labelling certification to support its origin. We need to have confidence in the food chain from farmer to plate.

Growing your own Mulch by Kerry Nagle
Over the last 12 years Kerry has spent hundreds of dollars on buying and transporting bales of mulch hay for the garden, only to have it disappear into the soil over the course of a season. Spurred on by two other talks at PN meetings, ie one by Elisabeth Fekonia and another by Frances Michaels, Kerry decided to aim to produce all the mulch for her gardens on site. When a bale of hay sat in the carport for over six months, she realised she was there.  Kerry will tell you what she grows and how she uses it to mulch and feed her gardens.

Russian/Elephant Garlic by Mel Hobbins
Mel Hobbins came to Australia in late 2004, from the UK, and has been on their 30 acre Traveston property for 9 years. Quite a change from the small house blocks he had in the UK, although Mel had several Allotment Gardens, most without a water supply. Although primarily a horse property he has made an impact on the landscape with an extensive Orchard, traditional raised veggie beds, a 900 tree hardwood plantation, rain forest and revegetation plantings and since 2010 has been experimenting with and expanding plantings of Tropical Veggies and support species.

Permaculture Noosa meetings are FREE and open to the public.  Beginning at 7pm with a Marketplace (where members share their surplus home grown produce by giving, exchanging or selling it), the guest speakers start at 7.30pm and supper (gold coin donation) will be served at 9pm.
