Permacuture

Dear All

Have you often thought how permaculture may be a good transition model for self-sufficiency or can permaculture pracitised in our own gardens really feed a large population? Find out on April 18!!

Permacuture Northern Beaches’ next guest speaker is John Seed who will speak on a unique project in Zimbabwe, Africa – The Chikukwa Project. John, is an internationally renowned ecologist who started the Rainforest Information Center in Australia  and has worked around the world on forest and biodiversity issues. For this he has received an Order of Australia Medal.

John’s presentation will include a 20 minute preview of the film, “The Chikukwa Project – from malnutrition to abundance – permaculture tackles hunger in Africa.”  This highlights how permaculture can be a stable, abundant food source in communities that have been impoverished and suffering malnourishment.  Chikukwa is now becoming a training center to promote permaculture throughout Africa and a great model for the developing world. The film and presentation will be followed by questions and answers.

Thsi event is supported by the Warringah Council Community Grant project.

A raffle with first prize of a Growall from Atlantis Corp (installed by Sustainability Systems and Services) plus second and third prizes of a gift pack from Warringah Council, and David Attenborough DVDs will be drawn on the night.

Please book your seats to help us with preparations.
