International Permaculture Day Bracknell

What a day! We hosted an International Permaculture Day in Bracknell at Heather and Nick’s Property. The sun came out all day and around 80 people came out to share the skills, knowledge and produce. Thank you to everyone for you wonderful fruit, vegies seeds, knowledge and skills. A special thanks to Heather and Nick for hosting, Sharon for her soap demonstration, Megan for the wonderful basket making circle, Sekin for spinning all day, Dianne for the worm and compost knowledge and Sherridan for the ‘My vegi patch’ kids corner.

Our next event is in Hobart Family Expo 17th May Mather’s Lane and May14th 4.30pm for the Colony 47 Garden Group, 432 Elizabeth St. We are planning small events for Launceston over winter and will be back in spring for a big event!

We had wonderful interviews by ABC Rural radio by Rosemary Grant, thank you!
