International Permaculture Day 2015 - In Support of Soil!

  • 03 May 2015
  • All over Sydney!
This year, International Permaculture Day (IPD) 2015 is celebrating the International Year of Soils.

Healthy soil makes for healthy people, animals and plants; it provides the foundation for all life on land. Soil gives us food, clean water, clean air, medicine, fibre and fuel, it’s also a climate regulator and buffer.

But soil is under threat. Today almost one third of the planet’s surface is classed as desert and a quarter of all agricultural soils have been lost. The remaining topsoil is depleted and could vanish within 60 years. The good news is that we can restore our soils and, at the same time, solve other global challenges. The key lies in rebuilding topsoil to bring back life to the land.

Permaculture can do this and we need to spread the word!

PSN will be part of IPD as usual, with some of our members opening their gardens to the public. We will also help publicise other events, so please watch this space!

If you want to open your garden please let our Gardens Team know by emailing: garden@permaculturenorth.org.au

If you can help at one of our open gardens events, please let our Shows Team know by emailing: shows@permaculturenorth.org.au

You can find out more and register your own event on the official Permaculture Day 2015 website.
