    I would like to start a permaculture interest/action group in Canberra. Since moving here from Sydney I have not been so involved in permaculture networks. I have been trying to fathom growing food at home in the climate! I would be very interested if there are folks involved / interested in the A.C.T. so we can get something started, if it is not already.

    Permaculture groups in Canberra Australia

    Hi Fee,

    I live in the Canberra region (Captain's Flat) and commute every (week) day into Canberra. We purchased a 530 acre property a little under 12 months ago that we intend to convert to organic production over the next few years. I would be very interested in participating in a permaculture group, as I am quite bewildered by some of what I have read in the the introduction to Permaculture book, so much so that I have not purchased the more advanced texts and have considered retaining a permaculture consultant instead of trying to design it myself.

    regards,

    Amanda

    We'd certainly be pleased to have you join us Josh. We are in the process of trying to contact a group that is or possibly was operating in Canberra, but their telephone details are out of date, so Fee has posted them a letter and we are waiting to see if we get a reply.

    Will keep you posted, if they are no longer operational we will start something ourselves and we would love to hear from others in the region who are similarly inclined.

    Amanda

    Hi Amanda, Josh and Fee,

    we have a pretty strong netwrok down here and run Intro adn PDC courses.
    Givem me a yell if you want more info.
    regards

    Many thanks Sharon,
    We have had the offer of a space to meet in at the ANU. David's experience / comments on this would be appreciated. Was it a safe, warm meeting space?

    Cheers

    Permies in the ACT

    Hi Fee and Amanda,

    Did you recieve my email? Tried to send you both a personal message on 24/4 I think, via this site but Im not sure if it got through.

    Im interested in meeting with a few others and learning about PACT and how to get things going again i.e possible courses of action.

    Fee, were you a member of a network in Sydney? I don't know much of what's going on there.

    My email is [email protected]. Please contact me as I'd love if we could arrange a meeting.
