Permaculture Noosa Monthly Meeting 19th April 2018
Thu 19 Apr, 2018 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM$2 – $4
Permaculture Noosa monthly meetings are usually held on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Doors open at 6.00pm, when a market takes place where we share surplus home grown produce and plants by giving, exchanging or selling. Entry is a $4 donation for non-members, $2 for members. The Entry donation entitles you to supper. Anyone who has genuine financial difficulties and cannot afford the entry donation will be excused. We will not turn anyone away. The meeting begins at 6.30pm and the night is complete with a “bring a plate” shared supper at 8pm. All welcome. See you there……
