Its with real excitement that NHG invite you to book now and attend the first from what we understand formal convergence of its kind of Permaculture in Gippsland. With your help and input we’ve been able to reach some really interesting people to help make this event a special one and a solid foundation of which to hold many more in the future based on the 3 Permaculture ethics – This event has focus on ‘share of surplus’ and reaching a greater audience and helping to grow this system of designing human habitats that have core values centred around regeneration of Community, Land and Food Systems.
Gippsland Food Production and Permaculture into the future
We will explore a vision for Permaculture in Gippsland and look at what are the opportunities for all those who join us on the day. How we can best work together in collaboration, support each others enterprises and inform our friends and customers in a way that inspires new conversation around food and Permaculture ethics. How do we design new systems that integrate new thinking? how will our ideas become invasive species in our region; threatening to destroy our traditional culture of hopelessness. This talk may seem harmless, full of possibilities and practical advice for small farms, but it is actually spreading revolutionary seeds that jeopardise agribusiness and the alienation between people and nature. Romantic dreamers have been advocating rural livelihoods before, whilst struggling to make a living off the land. So, good people, if you are standing up for your rights as victims of your circumstances, stay away from this event, it might just change what you think and inspire change in others.
