What a day! We hosted an International Permaculture Day in Bracknell at Heather and Nick’s Property. The sun came out all day and around 80 people came out to share the skills, knowledge and produce. Thank you to everyone for you wonderful fruit, vegies seeds, knowledge and skills. A special thanks to Heather and Nick for hosting, Sharon for her soap demonstration, Megan for the wonderful basket making circle, Sekin for spinning all day, Dianne for the worm and compost knowledge and Sherridan for the ‘My vegi patch’ kids corner.
