As promised by our celebrity gardening guest for the day, the fun loving Costa Georgiadis , the rain did stop and the sun did shine for our National Permaculture Day 2011 at Yandina Community Gardens. Costa was given a warm sunshine coast permaculture welcome from the hundreds of people that came to celebrate our day. We had regular tours of the established award winning gardens and talks on Pizza Cob Ovens, Chooks, Aquaponics and sub tropical plants. Costa spent the day with us and had several occasions to Fire Up the crowd with his passion for all things organic. Costa didn’t leave emptied handed as he was awarded a very prestigious award – the scarecrow logie (http://www.ecofilms.com.au/2011/05/02/costa-gets-a-permaculture-logie-award/). The day wouldn’t be complete without relaxing in our cafe served with organic beverages and mouth watering food and the sounds of marimbas playing.
