Hi There, Given the catastrophic events that have been and are still unfolding around us here in Victoria I thought it might be appropriate put a call out for people who would be able to volunteer their time to consult those affected by this disaster when the time comes to rebuild. My hope is that such a group would be effective in helping people to prepare themselves their homes, property and stock to better cope with future fire events. This disaster is happening now but, this is the environment in which we live and it is of utmost importance that those of us with relevant knowledge and skills help to inform our community of any ways they can plan better for the future. I’m putting a call out for those with a particular interest or skill in the areas of: Fire prevention strategies, Fire sector planning, Design for stock protection, Housing design. There is also the issue of community refuge areas to be re-established when towns are rebuilt. I know that there are people in the Permaculture community that have excellent skills in these areas. I implore you to get involved in any way you can. If you would be interested in helping our community in this way please send me a private message. Regards, Jodi.
