This year permaculture central coast has been fortunate to attract a great mix of new and long standing members to build upon the great work done by previous volunteers. We have spent the break since the AGM getting together to talk about how we can better align what we do with the ethics and principles of permaculture. The results are exciting! We have lots of great things planned for this year including our regular hall gatherings, zoom presentations, a new Permablitz team and more. Our president, Meg McGowan, recently gave us all an overview via Zoom of some of the changes and our first meeting for the year will fill in all the details.
Come along to meet the volunteers our president has dubbed ‘The Dream Team’ and to hear about all of the great opportunities to explore and expand permaculture in 2021. We’ve heard member feedback on the need to have more activities across our region and we think you’ll be very happy with all of the great things we’ve come up with. The people heading up each of the various projects will give a short presentation to let you know what’s going to be happening and to give you the opportunity to join their team or to attend their events.
If you have something permaculture-related you’d like to share with members there’s an open forum at the end of the night.
It’s also an opportunity to meet some like-minded people, make a deposit or withdrawal from the seed bank, free-cycle via the share table or perhaps buy or sell permaculture related items. If you would like to sell please arrive at 6.30pm and donate something to our raffle.
The raffle prizes this month include a ‘walk and talk’ consultation with a permaculture designer from the Permacoach team, valued at $300, and a bokashi bin with everything you need to get started, valued at $98. If you have garden produce or other items you would like to donate as prizes please bring them along on the night.
We are also back to having a shared supper at the end of the night. It would be a great help if you could avoid any single use plastic or other waste and bring single serve items that can be shared with tongs, so we can stay COVID safe. All food will be served by our two new kitchen volunteers, Lisa and Bridget
At the time of writing, COVID restrictions mean we can only have 52 people in the hall so please REGISTER IF YOU WANT TO ATTEND via firstname.lastname@example.org
We are all looking forward to getting together to meet for the first time, or to reconnect.
