“Consciously designed landscapes which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fibre and energy for provision of local needs. People, their buildings and the ways in which they organise themselves are central to permaculture. Thus the permaculture vision of permanent or sustainable agriculture has evolved to one of permanent or sustainable culture.” David Holmgren
The Hornsby Local Group are holding a Permaculture Design Day with a visit to Sylvia and Terry’s Garden in Hornsby followed by a planning afternoon in Asquith.
Sylvia has been involved with permaculture for many years and her garden is a real delight and insight into permaculture. She is very innovative and is currently planting to attract butterflies to enhance her garden.
After the visit to Sylvia’s garden we will head to Jess and Phil’s place in Asquith place for afternoon tea and to design some practical ideas for their garden.
