There are many stories, myths, and misinformation about aquaculture. Aquaculture is now the fastest growing food production sector in the world and according to the UN now accounts for 50% of fish consumed around the globe. There are many stories, myths, and misinformation about aquaculture. Aquaculture expert, Joseph Ayoub, will answer these questions as well as your won:

What is aquaculture and how does it work?
What is the difference between aquaculture and aquaponics?
What is normally in commercial fish feed and how does this impact the fish you buy and then consume?
What types of fish based fertilisers are there and how can they work for you?

Joseph's own fish based fertiliser will be available for purchase on the night and he may also bring some barramundi for sale.

We will have a swap table to share the abundance from your garden and home, such as small potted plants, crops, and books. There will also be organic teas and coffee available, please bring a plate of food to share. 

Entry is by donation at the door to cover costs. All welcome!!

International Permaculture Day

International Permaculture Day

International Permaculture Day, on the first Sunday in May, is a day of celebration and action for permaculture around the world. It is a day when visitors can see these range of our initiatives, ask questions and decide for themselves whether the permaculture design system has relevance to the challenges we face and to creating resilient communities.

Now in its 10th year, International Permaculture Day has grown rapidly from its roots as a local Australian initiative to a global day of permaculture celebrated in over 35 countries.


It is a chance to visit homes, gardens and farms, or go along to workshops, permablitzes (garden makeovers) and much more. Stay tuned for Permaculture Northern Beaches activities.
