New Permaculture Directory for the Central Coast

Yellow Pages book open on a table
23/03/2022

We often get enquiries about professional permaculture services like designers and landscapers because these small businesses usually don’t have a big budget to advertise. And people are not always aware of other volunteer organisations such as produce swaps, community gardens, food co-operatives, etc. In response to this need, we have launched the first ever online Permaculture directory for the Central Coast.

What is the PCC Directory

The PCC (Permaculture Central Coast) Directory will list Permaculture-related businesses and community groups on the Central Coast. We will also include our own local and special interest groups as PCC is growing and it’s hard for members to keep track of everything we do.

How to access the Directory

The Directory resides on our website and can be accessed from any page with the Directory link in the top menu. The most convenient way to browse the Directory is to explore categories like you would do with the Yellow Pages. There is also a comprehensive search page to find entries by name, suburb, etc.

How add a business listing to the Directory

Purchase a 1-Year Directory listing

First, you need to purchase access to the Directory for your business on our website.

The cost is $20 per year on top of your regular PCC membership. To get free access for the 1st year, use the FREEDIRECTORY2022 coupon code at the Checkout. This free offer ends on 30/06/2022.

How to edit a business listing

You can edit your listing at any time and as many times as you want. The process is similar to submitting a listing. You will need to wait for our team to review and approve your changes. During this review, your listing will be temporarily removed from the Directory. We will strive to process these requests as quickly as possible but keep in mind that we are a volunteer organisation.

Free listing for selected community groups

Not-for-profit organisations can contact us directly for a free listing. We will review each request and publish these listings at our discretion.
