The notes from my recent presentation to Jamberoo Community Growers on swales.
I applied for, and was awarded, a Council scholarship to do a Permaculture Design Course. I can’t wait to get started!
We had 9 cubic metres (4.6 tons) of mulch delivered – and I have to move it all by wheelbarrow!
Rosina Buckman, a member of the Permaculture Noosa group and winner of the 2009 Sunshine Coast Council Living Smart – Edible Landscape award, visits.
Lots of photos from the Kiama Sustainability Expo and Kiama Community Garden Open Day, held on Sunday. There were lots of local organisations and businesses present, as well as celebrity gardener Costa from SBS. What a top day!
It took a long time, but I finally finished digging the swale across the back of my shed. With mango, banana, coffee, loquats, sweet potato, taro and more it should be a productive little area soon!
By “chopping and dropping” your weeds you not only mulch and return nutrients to the soil, but you avoid disturbing the soil surface and prevent more weed seeds germinating.
A little more unusual than chickens and ducks, geese can provide several useful functions in the garden if you have the space.
Photos and a description of a very cleverly designed chicken coop.
Some ideas from Permaculture Visions for incorporating water into your garden design to add an extra dimension in both aesthetics and practicality.
