PNB WHAT'S ON

Your monthly e-Newsletter from Permaculture Northern Beaches - 

We bring a variety of at least three activities each month to the permaculture community on the Northern Beaches. Each month is no exception with a mix of permatours and permabees (garden tours and working bees) , workshops, native bees and beekeeping, seed saving, eco-products and living skills. We also run Introduction to Permaculture weekend courses twice a year.  Our monthly education evenings are on the last Thursday each month from February to November at Nelson Heather Community Centre, Banksia Room, 5 Jacksons Rd. North Narrabeen, doors open 7:15 pm.  All are welcome and entry is by donation.

Over the next 18 months we have a special initiative on Greening Your Home - inside and out.  This includes clean energy technologies, sustainable building, a non-toxic environment and organic living. There will be a series of workshops and guest expert sessions as well as displays and resources.

Have a question or wanting to follow some great postings then check out our Permaculture Northern Beaches Community Organization Facebook page. We are volunteers and having a great permaculture community is part of why we are all involved. Volunteering is always appreciated and you have the opportunity to learn a lot. You can follow the link to our website online at the end of this message or email: p.n.b@hotmail.com.  

To find out more you can check out our events listings on this website and sign up for our electronic monthly e-newsletter.

A GREAT Night!... The UN Year Of The Soil in full flow on the Northern Beaches, and for good reason... THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO CAME, VOLUNTEERED & SUPPORTED :)

Wow, last nights' event was huge!

A great homage to the importance of cultivating organic soil... not just for great food, but to address soooo many of our challenges. 

It was deeply moving to hear of the story of our PNB Assistant Coordinator & Kimbriki Senior Ecologist, Peter Rutherford, in turning his life from conventional farming to educator in Organic practices, and massively encouraging to hear of him being on the verge of launching huge projects in the Northern Beaches area... the man to watch!

Costa held the crowd amazingly, and entertained us all while giving away some GREAT prizes. Meanwhile, Graeme's expansive knowledge about our current environmental predicament, and passion in delivering his incredibly insightful action plan filled the room... and seemingly overloaded the system when all of our electricity was cut close to the finale :).

A great night of inspiration and promise for the Northern Beaches, to put the wind into our sails for all the events to come....

A massive thanks to the Kimbriki team and PNB volunteers to help make it happen. Hit Get Involved if you want to join us as a volunteer at the next big PNB bash...
