Information Evenings

What Happens?

Each evening has a different theme where a guest presenter has been arranged, or a recent topical film is shown, or an activity/workshop occurs. A host of permaculture information and plenty of associated environmental information is available. You will also find a swap table where members can bring in surplus fruit, vegetables or plants. PCC also promotes recycling so members can bring in items that may be of value to someone else that they no longer need but don't want to send to landfill. And we guarantee you will be impressed by the healthy food and refreshments after each meeting.

When

Third Tuesday of each month from February to November, 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start

Where

Tuggerah Hall, Anzac Road, Tuggerah, directly opposite Hungry Jacks - within easy walking distance of Tuggerah Railway Station.
