—- We use and Value Renewable Resources and Services – “Let nature take its course”
—- We produce No Waste – “Waste not, want not”
—- How we design from Patterns
—- We Integrate rather than Segregate –
—- We use Small and Slow Solutions – “Slow and steady wins the race”

—- We use Edges and Value the Marginal – “Don’t think you are on the right track just because it’s a well-beaten path”

About the Organisers

The Hawkesbury EarthCare Centre serves as a focus and gathering place for people learning and working together for responsible stewardship of the Earth.

The EarthCare philosophy is based on the principle that the needs of current generations should be met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

From it's beginning as an experimental organic growing project the centre has developed into a broad based sustainable living organisation. It promotes environmentally responsible land use, appropriate technologies, for industry and human settlement, and the development of healthy and self-reliant communities.
