Growing local

Applying permaculture principles to the suburban sized block is possible and even fun.

Do you need some help or inspiration to get your suburban patch of permaculture and organic productive garden started or stimulate it to flourish?

Come along to the suburban permaculture workshops starting Saturday 31 July. Small group, different locations and plenty of good, sensible yet creative ways to have a permaculture oasis at your place.

Happy to have a chat and tell you more if you like. Just call me

Cheers, Linda 3349 2962

Hi Elaine
Permaculture embraces the practice of permanent agriculture as it allows for crops, animals and people to inhabit and grow on a land space inperpetuity. That is, what we do does not detract from the environment and diversity but adds to its diversity and fertility. Thus, permaculturre certainly does embrace annual crops, decorative and insect attracting flowers, habitat plantings and vegies of all sorts. A good example of permaculture in another setting is the chinampas in asia where rice paddies are integrated permaculture plantings with animal and plant species.
It's also about how people interact in a social setting and developing support networks, a little like what we are doing now for example :)

I'd be interested to know how it is possible to have permanent on a small suburban block - fruit trees and vines, yes I get that. But how does annual vege/fruit crops work into the permanent theme? Or is there a wider definition of 'Permaculture'?
