Permaculture Connections and Permaculture Golden Plains invite you to attend a lecture by: Peter Andrews WHEN: Tuesday November 17th 2009 at 7pm. WHERE: Peter Thwaites Lecture Theatre, (LT1) Deakin University, Waurn Ponds Campus, Geelong VIC COST: 25 per person (this event is not sponsored/funded) BOOKINGS: Jo Klein 0438 828 042 or [email protected] Peter Andrews is a grazier and Thoroughbred horse breeder from Bylong in the Upper Hunter Valley and was the subject of the most popular ever episode and the only ever two-part series of ABC’s “Australian Story.” Peter will provide an overview of his theories on how Australia’s landscape can be brought ‘Back from the Brink’ of total degradation. He will challenge your beliefs on the treatment of weeds and your understanding of Australia’s system of hydrology. His insight and ability to read the landscape will leave you in no doubt that it can be restored to pre-European levels…..or better. This lecture is a prelude to a full day forum with Peter, Tony Coote and others planned for early March 2010, Geelong.

It is important that we begin a dialogue on alternative methods of land restoration than those that currently continue to fail. Peter’s work has been successfully trialed, and continues to be monitored by Australian National University.
