Permaculture Noosa Presents: Put Less in Landfill, Grow Your Own and Help Others

With Pene Mitchell from “Worms Down Under”
& Leonie Shanahan “Edible School Gardens”
And Joy Cross From “Living Hope Pomona”

The next Permaculture Noosa meeting will be a night of talking about Free Resources and recycling within the local community.

LEONIE SHANAHAN will share information on the systems she has in place for working with local restaurants and cafes to collect items normally headed to landfill and using them instead to help improve her soil, feed her animals, grows her vegies and benefit herself and others.

One of the ways Leonie recycles is to use worm farms.  PENE MITCHELL from “Worms Down Under” will talk about the sustainable organic waste managements systems and worm farms - from backyards to large-scale compost systems - already being used here on the Sunshine coast.

Sharing your surplus is one of the Permaculture Principles.  Joy Cross, founder of Living Hope Pomona, will reveal how she is helping families on the Sunshine coast with food boxes and how permaculture communities can share their surplus with those in less fortunate situations.  

A short time will be set aside for the Permaculture Noosa AGM prior to the speakers at the October meeting.

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 (for a gold coin donation) will be served at 9pm.
