PSN 2012 launches in February with the screening of the recently released production "Urban Permaculture"
The first meeting of PSN at 7:30 pm Monday 20th February 2012 will kick off with Frank Gapinski’s “Urban Permaculture” with Geoff Lawton. Frank has kindly given PSN permission to screen this new production.
This production is jam packed with segments and interviews with PSN members and their permaculture gardens. This is a tribute to PSN. ... and just in time for the organisations 20th anniversary!
PSN members featured include Debra Alderton, Elizabeth Crichton, Penny Pyett, Lucinda Coates, Les & Annette Mulder and even includes the PSN Karonga School permaculture gardens. This is a result of the work of many years from our Garden Team, Local Groups’ Permablitz’s and members. All of this was propagated from the wonderful and comprehensive permaculture introductory courses offered at Ryde TAFE.
||This is a great film! No one should miss it! The DVD is stock full with ideas and strategies for the urban permaculturalist including animal systems, water harvesting systems, grey water management, earthworks, natural swimming pools, food forests and creative garden design on concrete. Copies of the DVD may be available on the night.
Below are some words from Frank. More information can be found on Frank’s website www.ecofilms.com.au.
Its been a whirlwind trip over the last six months putting the pieces together for what is to become The Urban Permaculture DVD with Geoff Lawton.
Nothing goes quite according to script and yet making a video like this is a bit like herding cats. Its chaotic. Like walking into a jungle of vines, monkeys and snakes, you are not sure where you are heading or if the whole project will sink into a disaster.
Permaculture is a bit wild and rampant and just when you think you have it all figured out, neat and tidy-like and have it organized and in the bag – a spanner gets thrown into the works and you realize there is so much more to the story that can be told in 90 minutes.
