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
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.
