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 outdoor gatherings on the third Sunday of the month in permaculture-friendly outdoor venues on the Central Coast.
Our 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
