Event Description

18th March – Demystifying Permaculture with Jason Davies (9.30am)

Permaculture. What does it mean?

Jason has been in sustainability for quite a few years. He was a chef in a past life and never really cared about where food came from, Jason became a Qualified Horticulturist 20 years ago and had his own successful business around Noosa with prestige properties. After completing a Permaculture Design Certificate his thoughts opened up to create and Design Permaculture Properties with maximum use of all space from units to acreage.

There are 12 Principles to Permaculture and he will give you an overview on all of these from housing, finances, water, food production, design etc. It’s not just organic gardening!
His infectious enthusiasm towards sustainability wants everyone to grow some of their own food, have a water tank and apply some Permaculture principals.  Join Jason to demystify what Permaculture really is about.

Cost: $5 Non-Members, Gold coin for Members, Free to Regular Volunteers

Duration 2 hours. Bookings are NOT required.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
