There will be other shorter talks on topics such as ‘what to plant this month’, garden tips and book reviews:
Well known gardening expert (and long time Permaculture Noosa member) Leonie Shanahan will make a short presentation on growing soil:
“Do you want vibrant health, energy and happiness? It all starts in the soil! Growing soil that is full of fungi, microbes and life – and its easy, all you need is to spend time to appreciate nature and what she is doing for us. Get your soils right then plant your organic seed or seedlings and with some minor maintenance you will produce food that is going to support your body to health. Healthy soil, healthy body, healthy you and your family. I’ll tell you what I do to grow the healthiest food possible (pots and in ground) and the best plants to grow for your health. Looking forward to seeing all my permie friends”
Do consider bringing friends or neighbours to our meetings. It’s how we grow the group and may be inspiring to them as well. See you there.
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……
