National Permaculture Day and Permablitz on Bush Telegraph
Great work Kat, Liz and Geoff! This was on Bush Telegraph on Radio National yesterday…
Food on Friday – National Permaculture Day – get blitzed!
By Margot Foster
It’s National Permaculture Day on May 1, 2011.
Apart from being a system of growing fresh food all year round, the rise of permaculture is also knitting communities together who help each other establish productive gardens and share knowledge, information and friendship.
The ‘permablitz’ is a perfect example of a philosophy of ‘care for the earth; care for people’.
