HORTICULTURAL ADVENTURES with Mel Hobbins
Come join Mel Hobbins and share his horticultural adventures over the last 11 years in the Noosa Hinterland. Whether we’re looking at Cool Season Veggies in raised beds, Tropical veggies in Food Forest systems, growing in containers, Fruit and Nuts, Native tree plantation and revegetation plantings or Native Fish, there is something for everyone. We’ll be journeying with him to see how he is becoming self-sufficient in mulch and compost production. He’ll be sharing not only the successes but the lessons learned…..and sharing the excitement of future projects and experiments that lie ahead.
Mel has a passion for growing food, real food, nutrient rich and tasty food. Fruit that ripens on the tree and drips juice when you bite into it. A belief that “Mother Nature” has most of the answers we need….if only we take the time and effort to understand, observe and work with her.
“Do not expect to hear about a strict adherence to ‘Permaculture Principles’, there will be some contrarian views expressed. I always remember my late Grand Father over 60 years ago, drilling into me the overriding responsibility of a gardener which is that each and every year ‘to leave the soil in a better condition than you found it’.
I look forward to talking and sharing with you all. Mel Hobbins”
Permaculture Noosa monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Doors open at 5.30pm when meals will be available before the meeting. A market takes place where we share surplus home grown produce and plants by giving, exchanging or selling. Entry is a gold coin donation for non-members. The meeting begins at 6.30pm and the night is complete with a “bring a plate” shared supper at 8pm. All welcome.
