Leonie Shanahan – Your health is your wealth, and it starts in the soil!
We are very pleased to have Leonie Shanahan as guest speaker at our October Club Night.
Leonie will take us on a journey of the real goal of living permaculture and the gifts permaculture can give us all as a community by sharing her incredible opportunities and life through this club. “More than ever, we need to know our tribe and become a resilient, resourceful and unbreakable community.”
Leonie has been a member of Permaculture Noosa for 20 years, enjoying many positions on the committee including President. Leonie says every step of her life has been supported, and encouraged by members of Permaculture Noosa – she considers them her Permie family. “Without Permaculture Noosa I could not have achieved what I have in my personal and business endeavours.”
She is the author of two books, the very popular Eat your Garden – organic gardening for home and schools, and her newly released Lyme disease Sucks – the trauma, the truth & the triumph, in which she shares her personal journey with Lyme disease. Both of her books will be available for purchase on the night.
Don’t miss this extraordinary speaker who is certain to inspire us all!
ALSO…. we will be having our popular community raffle! Bring anything you wish to donate to the raffle, whether it be excess produce, homemade goodies or little crafty bits and bobs! We will also be welcoming you all to join us for a “bring a plate” or “gold coin” shared supper after the meeting and of course for a chat! See you then!
September Club Night recap
At our recent Club Night, we were so happy to welcome Emily Boyd from Food Waste Loop at the Yandina Community Gardens as our guest speaker. Emily told us all about this fantastic initiative with local businesses in Yandina collecting their organic waste to be composted at the community gardens. So far they have created 10,000L of compost! What an amazing achievement! An inspiring story about reframing waste as a valuable resource. Keep an eye out because in the future, they plan to sell bags of compost to the public. We are so thankful for our close relationship with Yandina Community Gardens and look forward to continuing the mutual support. Thank you to Emily for an interesting and informative presentation.
We also paid tribute to Sue Anderson who died earlier this month. Sue was exceptionally dedicated to the club and made a significant contribution to seeds savers and the Cooroy Community Permaculture Gardens. You may also know Sue if you attended the library seed saving workshops or came along on a Club Day garden tour. Thank you to members of her family for attending- the evening was extra special with you there to see our love for Sue. She will be missed.
Permaculture Noosa monthly meetings are held at the Cooroy Memorial Hall on the 1st Tuesday of each month. Doors open at 6:00 pm, when a market takes place, where we share surplus home grown produce and plants by giving, exchanging, or selling. At 6:30 pm our presentation begins which includes an interesting guest speaker each month.
Entry is a $5 donation for non-members. There is no charge for members.
Do consider bringing friends or neighbours to our meetings. It’s how we grow the group and may be inspiring to them as well. As always, you will leave the meeting better informed!
