A neat restaurant in Hobart
A bunch of us camped the ReSeed centre, inn an orchard that was planted many years ago…there were nashi pears for the plucking and many varieties of apples, it was so great!!
Beach at Penguin. After the Intro to permaculture course was the 12th AustralAsian Permaculture Convergence which I volunteered at for 3 days for the ticket price. They fed us 200 folks breakfast, lunch and dinner and even had wine and beer for ‘pleasant hour’. I saw loads of speakers and the ones standing out for me were David Holmgren, Nicole Foss and Stuart Hill. the topics were wide ranging and had a lot to do with the non-sustainability of our planet the ways things are going now. There were a lot of passionate people who have been at permaculture for 40 years.

Look at the price of salmon! I ate lamb all the time…and wallaby and kangaroo…
The introduction to permaculture cour was 2 days, this is the classroom. WordPress refuses to put the photos in the sequence I post them…I hope you can make some sense of what I am up to, and when.
perma folks, David Holmgren on the left, he is one of the best speakers I have ever heard and his life philosophy is right in line with mine…I thanked him profusely for articulating it.
Water level demo….now some of you away be wondering, what about the bike tour?? The Brodie Brat (real name), was so knackered and worn out that I gave her away to Bike Kitchen in Hobart, where they will fix her while teaching people how to fix bikes, then she will go to a good home. I have been traveling by bus and car….
So after working on Tiger Hill Permaculture farm (a very new venture, not really a farm yet), and coming into contact with some gurus of the permaculture world, I decided to go to Penguin on the north coast and take an introduction to Permaculture course. here is my first day in Penguin, taken from the pub balcony where I had the great fortune of running into a table of folks I will call the ‘troublemakers’….I hung out with them for days…enough said!
Get a load of these prices! beer was outrageous, wine less so…
