Permaculture Noosa

This Month’s Meeting

  17th September 2015

Permaculture Noosa meetings are FREE and open to the public. The meeting begins at 7.00 pm with a marketplace where members share their surplus home-grown produce by giving, exchanging or selling.  The meeting starts at 7.30 pm, and supper (gold coin donation) will be served at 9pm.

We are meeting at the Cooroy State School for this month’s meeting only. Parking is just off the road and the meeting will be held in the new building behind the school.

Taking care of your trees

Heinz and Angela Gugger are the owners of Mary Valley Orchards that produces sweet, seedless persimmons from March to April and Stone Fruit in September. With over 12,000 trees this is one of the largest persimmon farms in Australia.
Over the years Heinz experimented and introduced new systems to improve soil and tree health, pest management and moved to a sustainable growing system.
Heinz is consultant and teacher to a variety of customers in changing to biological and biodynamic farming systems and a guest speaker at domestic and international events.
During the talk we will look at overall tree health, how to read any nutritional deficiencies on the leaf and how to protect your fruit against pests.
