Who are we?
Permaculture Central Coast is an enthusiastic group of volunteers that work together to encourage more people on the NSW Central Coast to learn, practice and teach permaculture.
We want to inspire people everywhere to get more permaculture happening on the ground.
Everything we do is guided by the three core ethics of permaculture:
Earth Care, People Care, Fair Share
What do we do?
PCC hosts a range of permaculture activities throughout the year. We also support and promote the permaculture-related activities of other organisations and businesses.
We hold a hall gathering on the third Tuesday of every month from 6.30pm until 9.30pm at the Tuggerah Community Hall, 9 Anzac Road, Tuggerah.
Hall gatherings include an opportunity for members to share anything that is surplus to their needs, including books, magazines and plants.
Our seed bank helps us to build local resilience and provides free, locally sourced seed to members in exchange for them growing and returning some seed to the bank.
A raffle of goods donated by members is held at each gathering and members are also welcome to sell permaculture-related products.
The PCC Craft Teas meet weekly at different locations to share tea, company and ethical crafting with an emphasis on upcycled and recycled materials.
We also host permaculture events across the Central Coast, including workshops, training, garden tours and get togethers. Our ‘Permablitz’ team meet at a different member’s property each month to help them implement their permaculture plan.
Connect with via our Facebook group, Instagram page and YouTube channel. These platforms are popular online forums for sharing events, information and advice. We also like to connect with well-known permaculture people from around Australia and share their wisdom via Zoom.
Our members work individually and collectively to reduce our ecological footprint. We share knowledge, skills, resources and support with each other. Our organisation relies entirely upon the efforts, skills and commitment of volunteers and all members are valued for their unique contributions and skills.
Membership is only $20 per year, or $30 for the whole family. You can join PCC via our website at permaculture.org.au
Where do we do it?
Tuggerah Hall, Anzac Road, Tuggerah is our regular information evening venue. Come by bus, train, bicycle, foot, skateboard, scooter or car (we encourage car pooling). We are conveniently located very close to Tuggerah Railway Station. Details about locations of events are provided prior to occurrence.
Official parking for Tuggerah Hall is in the Council car park across the road from the Hall next to Hungry Jacks. It holds about 15 cars and is a bit rough (sorry ) . There is disabled car parking space for 2 cars directly at the front of the Hall for those with disabled driver stickers . Please, please don’t park in the car park at the front of Pizza Inn, on the left hand side of the Hall, as they need this for their hungry patrons buying dinner at the time we are meeting. Nick the manager has been very supportive of us and often donates free pizza for our supper so lets respect his property .
When do we do it?
PCC meets on the third Tuesday of the month each February to November. Tuggerah Hall is open for members from approximately 6.30 pm (of course you early arrivers are welcome to help set up). We always start the evenings activities at 7.00pm sharp, to ensure members can get home consistently on time. Dates and timings for attendance at events are provided throughout the year via email, and as communicated at each regular Hall Gathering.
