We are looking forward to an exciting club night in February and this month our guest speaker is Dan Deighton.
Gardening has opened many pathways for Dan from planning & design, environmental restoration, community development and education and training. Dan has a degree in landscape architecture, a diploma in permaculture, is a co-founder of The Living Classroom and runs the Wellness Garden Program at The Big House in Pinbarren…whoa!
Dan is a passionate teacher of growing edible gardens. He will share the link between soil health, plant health and our health, and how we can develop our ‘brown thumbs’ to grow soil health, plant health & our health.
We cannot wait to hear what he has to share!
We will also be hearing from Meghan Halverson who has a lifelong passion for the environment and is a member and President of the Queensland Koala Crusaders Inc. The Queensland Koala Crusaders Inc is an Incorporated Association dedicated to improving koala conservation outcomes. Its mission is to be “a voice for the koala”. They are currently creating a strategic plan to provide a Sanctuary and Education Centre in the Noosa Region.
We are looking forward to hearing about the wonderful work this organisation does for our furry friends.

It covers so much! Bread making, cheese making, brewing, uses of herbs and recipes for any plant you care to grow. Definitely one for your library.

Your support helps our club to grow.
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!
Permaculture Noosa monthly meetings are held at the Cooroy Memorial Hall on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Doors open at 5.45 pm, when a market takes place where we share surplus home grown produce and plants by giving, exchanging or selling. Usually, there is a 45 – 60-minute keynote presentation as well as other shorter presentations on various permaculture related subjects.
Entry is a $5 donation for non-members. There is no charge for members. Anyone who has genuine financial difficulties and cannot afford the entry donation will be excused. We will not turn anyone away. The meeting begins promptly at 6.30pm and the night is complete with a shared supper (gold coin donation or bring a plate to share). We aim to complete our formal presentations by 8.30 pm. All welcome.
