    Hi Miss F
    Our group meets the third sunday of the month, 10am at various locations in and around Rockhampton. There is also a Waru permaculture group in Yeppoon. Another group in Rockhampton is the Wandal community gardens. PM me if you want any further information.

    Re: Groups in Rockhampton

    am wondering if anyone lives around the NANKIN area or knows anyone who does.

    Am looking at a property out that way and am trying to find out what its like out there, soil types, bore rates, rain fall ect.

    Can anyone help?

    That plus the blatant exploitation of workers - especially Chinese workers and the removal of resilience in small towns by aggressive competitiveness.
    I am a bit surprised it need explaining - I must tell Des.

    I am sorry - you need to be able to do as you need to do without excessive criticism from me.

    regards

    I would not have thought it excessive at all merely factual. someone needs to call a card a card.

    It was a very simple talk about permaculture, I learnt a couple of things. There was about 25 people in attendence. They made a display of a no-dig garden, the person doing the talk came from the Rockhampton community garden.
