Announcing Permaculture Hastings!

Filed under: Uncategorized — gbell12 @ 12:10 pm

Permaculture Hastings has launched! We’re bringing together people interested in sustainability from Port Macquarie, Wauchope, Comboyne, and Lake Cathie.

The first project is an extensive Permaculture Library that is available to you if you are in the Hastings region and join Permaculture Hastings.

Permaculture is a contraction of Permanent-Culture … in other words sustainability.  Permaculture is a design system and philosophy, working with and within Nature.  I firmly believe the long-term sustain of society should be the single most important issue at all levels of government and culture.  Environmental problems are huge and daunting, but Permaculture provides many of the answers.

My hope for starting Permaculture Hastings is to bring together people interested in all things sustainable.  Permaculture concerns itself with food, energy, water, shelter, and social structures.  We will create food forests, make organic vegie gardens, implement renewable energy systems, learn and network.

I also hope to be a networking hub for any and all activities related to sustainability in the area. For example: seed exchange groups, renewable energy mobs, local organic farmers, etc. See what I’ve found so far here.

If you’d like to contact me, I’m at (02) 6585 6516.  I can also be reached at permaculturehastings at gmail dot com.  You may also post a comment below.  I’d love to hear from you and start things rolling!
