Permaculture Noosa Monthly Meeting for 17th August 2017

August 17 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

gold coin donation for non-members
Our irrepressible Events Coordinator Valerie Wilson will talk about nature, its abundance and its wonder – how it works within our gardens and how we can/ work with it – especially as part of an introduction to  the community gardens which Permaculture Noosa has recently taken under its wing.

Here is an audio file of Valerie’s presentation – click to hear what Val had to say:

 

 

President Tim Peek has invited two other speakers with some interesting topics to present to us, including Sabrina Chakori of the Brisbane Tool Library who will explain to us how this innovative and waste-busting concept works:

The Brisbane Tool Library will provide resources, such as tools and skills. People who do occasional home improvements, garden or camping trips, but do not want to buy a tool that they might only use once, they could borrow it from our tool library. The tool library enables to use tools without actually owning them.

The main goal is to go beyond the material consumption of the current linear model of “take, make and dispose”. Therefore, the project is based on reusing, repairing, recycling and sharing tools and skills.

As no-profit social enterprise we aim to:

  • Enhance environmental sustainability, decreasing material consumption
  • Help building resilient neighbourhoods
  • Employ disadvantaged people & create social stability
  • Move toward a new sharing and circular economy”

Sabrina is also helping to organise a conference titled The New Economy. It should be an extremely interesting event and well worth your consideration.
