This is the beginning of an ongoing program to provide local residents with hands-on experience in bush regeneration. Whether you're looking for a new career or are keen to learn what you can do as an individual to regenerate our bushland, or even if you're looking to be part of a like-minded group who cares passionately about nature, contact Lis on 0407 437 553 if you'd like to join us (Numbers are very limited for this first session so you will need to book in, but there will be many more). ...

Correction: Sunday 9 August

Permaculture is guided by three ethics: Care of the Earth, Care of People and Share Surplus or Fair Share. A big thank you to Dennis and Gail who shared their surplus seedlings with Blackheath Community Farm on Sunday. Dennis grew lots of Green Sprouting Broccoli and Gail shared excess Broad Bean seedlings and Salvia plants which will be wonderful for attracting even more bees to the gardens. We all got stuck in to weed and clear spaces and by the end of the day all the seedlings and plants were comfortably re-homed at the Farm. Love our community!

We also planted out most of our onion seedlings, grown in the greenhouse, and transplanted brassicas from the fence beds which we un-netted.

A growing movement of gardeners — from ethno-botanists to green-thumb hobbyists — is committed to spreading awareness of methods for enhancing the intricate ecological relationships in local spaces.

Inspirational ethno-botanist Mony Caid says, “If you have billions of people on the planet, and we all start restoring native plants, we could fix the problem in, like, a year or two. You become a beneficial species of your local ecosystem. You start to learn the uses of these plants, and you start to grow them — for wildlife, but also for your own health, for your own medicine. . . We can be a little selfish about it. This is about human survival, too.”
