We will have a stand at Gosford Regional Show 3rd and 4th May again this year!
Our theme is on “small space gardens”. We thought with lots of people having bigger houses and less land on their blocks as the houseblocks are getting smaller then some creative ways to grow food in smaller areas may be useful to visitors to the Show.
PCC members: if you can help on either Saturday 3rd or Sunday 4th May, let us know or if you can help- with setup on Friday from 12 noon or pack up Sunday after the show closes let us know.
For more information, contact Robyn : firstname.lastname@example.org

It seems a long time since we had the last meeting for the year in November. That was quite a fun meeting with lots of delicious food and everyone having a great old chat. Not much change in the executive but maybe someone will step forward next time and have a go.
Guest speaker: Paula Paananen, 18th Feb
The Paananen family have traveled to Uganda several times over the past two years to work with the fishing communities on the shores and islands of Lake Victoria. The fishing communities face massive food insecurity, dwindling fish populations, a 40% HIV/Aid incidence rate and a rapidly depleting natural environment. Come along and hear the family share some of their experiences of teaching permaculture in African learn about the latest project developments of the One Passionfruit Project.
On 21st Jan, we’re going to watch 1 or 2 permaculture-related movies.
At this stage we’re planning to watch Geoff Lawton’s “Food Forest” and maybe “Harvesting Water”.
