Join us this Sunday 17 October for Club Day! It’s also our Annual General Meeting (AGM) for members to hear what’s been happening with the club this year and vote in our new and returning committee members.

Our guest speaker will be Noosa Councillor Tom Wegener. Tom is working hard and has exciting ideas about an Agriculture Hub in the Noosa Hinterland. Tom is PASSIONATE about creating climate change resilience in the area and he knows growing food and food security are essential to that. His big idea includes large farms and landowners leasing a small parcel of land to young farmers who are not able to buy land in the area. It’s a big, bold idea and we can’t wait to hear more about it! If you are a large landowner, interested in learning more about leasing land, or if you want to know more about growing a climate change resilient garden, come along and hear Tom at club day!

9:00am: Seed Savers– If you have never joined in before, this is a wonderful chance to learn how to save seeds, process and store them. An ancient practice in a modern world! Also, Harvest Swap – Bring along any excess home grown produce, or even some homemade or home baked goodies, to swap for something else! If you don’t feel you have anything to contribute, your presence is enough. There is always an abundance of produce for everyone to share.

10:00am : Our AGM will commence

11:00am: Tom Wegener

Tea And Coffee: – Available throughout the day for a gold coin donation to Permaculture Noosa.

If you’re new to permaculture, and have questions about the ethics and principles, members will be available to wander through the gardens with you and answer all your permaculture questions!

Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you all there!

September Club Day Recap

September Club Day was a glorious day in the gardens! It was wonderful to see enthusiasm for our regular seed saving and harvest share activities. We were also joined by Luke from Noosa Snake Catchers. Luke shared so many important tips for preparing our homes and gardens for spring, when snakes are on the move. Remember your compost pile will probably be a nice source of heat for snakes so be on the lookout for a reptile friend next time you turn your compost!
