Sun, 26 Feb 2012 – Field Day at Sweetwater Road, Awanui

Bring a friend, lunch to share. Trading table. 10a.m. for a 10.30am start.

The AGM is at John Kenderdine’s property where people can see some earth building in progress.

There will be a speaker, Steve Baldry with his "Yardlab" electric wheelbarrow which will amaze and delight you, especially if you have a sloping property!

The field day is on his neighbour’s property - Lynda and Evan have a 1 acre property where they are in the process of implementing a permaculture design using swales for water harvesting and chooks for free labour (weeding) and eggs – it’s interesting to see how much can be accommodated on one acre.

Directions to the Field Day

  1. From Awanui, drive north for 5 1⁄2 kms, then turn left onto West Coast Road to Lake Ngatu and 90m Mile beach.
  2. 2 kms along this road, turn left into Sweetwater road (immediately after Paparore school).
