    MAKING A 20 LITRE AERATED COMPOST TEA BREWER

    Following on from Hornsby Local Group’s talk on the benefits of actively aerated compost teas, this hands-on workshop will show you how to make a 20 litre bucket brewer for your home garden.  


    Don’t worry if you missed the Hornsby talk, there will be a short run down on compost teas and recipes to bring you up to speed.  During the workshop you will make your own 20 litre bucket brewer to take home and start brewing - just in time for a productive winter vegetable crop.   

    Materials for the brewer will be supplied, including a 20 litre bucket with lid, pipes, tubing, connectors & compost bag.  Please note that the cost DOES NOT include an air pump which you can  purchase online at an estimated cost of $30 to $40 plus postage. 

    Please note that there are limited spaces and registration will close at midnight on Saturday 1 April 2017 to allow time for the organisers to purchase the required equipment.

    FILM NIGHT: DESIGN FOR LIFE

    This inspiring documentary tells the story of a young couple who set out to perfect an abundant, sustainable way of living. Using permaculture design they turned a dusty paddock into an idyllic home, profitable farm and vibrant teaching centre.

    Annemarie and Graham Brookman's quest for the principles of sustainable living took them to 40 countries, until they encountered permaculture, a design system for sustainable living created by David Holmgren and Bill Mollison. It was everything they needed for a bold experiment, giving them a set of principles and techniques with which to plan their lives and a small farm to assess this new way of living.

     

    The film traces the physical and economic challenges they overcame: lack of capital, smallness of scale, droughts, floods and the loneliness of the pathfinder, to become one of the World's iconic permaculture properties and one of Australia's most awarded organic farms, The Food Forest.

    The movie explains the ethos and planning principles of permaculture through a range of interviews with David Holmgren, Graham and Annemarie Brookman and other designers. It also gives an insight into the thoughts of permaculture children whose generation must fix the exploitative foundations of global economics.

    Design for Life illustrates the spacial and energy planning of The Food Forest as well as tracing the development of direct sales through farmers markets, the phenomenon of WWOOFing and the spin-off enterprises of eco-tourism and short courses.

    Free for members, $5 for guests. 

    Doors open at 6:30pm - a good time to check out our members' library & catch up with other PSN members. 

    Please join us for supper after the film.

    Living Skills: Wild Mushroom Hunt


    From March till mid-May, it is time to go wild mushroom picking! The famous PSN mushroom hunt is on again in 2017. After plenty of rain this season looks to be very bountiful - the mushrooms started growing in big numbers in early March! Your guide will be Peter Pez.

    As we do every year, we will go to one of the State Forests beyond Blue Mountains, identify and collect edible mushrooms, then prepare a scrumptious lunch. 

    The registrations are open to members only.

    WHAT TO BRING
    Small knife, fork, eating bowl/plate, water, drinks (wine if you wish), and a perforated container for collected mushrooms (wicker or plastic baskets are the best). Be warned that we do pick a lot so don’t bring something too small.

    Please wear good walking shoes and warm clothes, including rain gear.


    For registration please click the button to the left or email ppezzolesi@gmail.com

    We meet in Blackheath at 9 am, from where we will drive for about 1 hr to one of State Forests. 





    By popular demand a second 2014 Living Skills mushroom picking tour beyond Blue Mountains is open for registrations!

    As usual, we will go to one of the State Forests, identify and collect edible mushrooms (Saffron Caps and Slippery Jacks). These are easily recognised (also recommended by the State Forests), but just to be sure, Margaret will check all finds in your baskets.

    Then we will prepare a tasty lunch and also learn how to preserve the bounty by pickling

    Your guide will be Margaret Mossakowska.

    WHAT TO BRING
    Small knife, fork, eating bowl/plate, water, drinks (wine if you wish), and a perforated container for collected mushrooms (wicker or plastic baskets are the best). Be warned that we do pick a lot so don’t bring something too small.

    If you would like to pickle some of your harvest, bring a few sterilised jars (100-200g size) with lids.
     
    Please wear good shoes and warm clothes, including rain gear.

    Margaret will be providing lunch, something we all look forward to. 

    Come join the activities, see a well established permaculture garden in action, get cuttings or divided plants from Margaret.

    A Permaculture Tree Change with Barry & Rosemary Hadaway

    Many long-term PSN members would remember Barry and Rosemary Hadaway, who were both very active in PSN until they moved from Sydney to Mudgee in 2013. Barry was responsible for the overhaul of the PSN constitution and was the Advocacy Team Leader par excellence.

    In our May Lindfield meeting, Barry and Rosemary Hadaway will share the details of their permaculture journey, how they built a sustainable home and what they have done so far to implement their permaculture plan. 


    In their talk, they will cover:

    • Things to consider in planning a tree change
    • Their Permaculture Plan, including their Water and Energy Plans
    • Building a Sustainable Home - What does this mean & what is their approach?
    • Progress to date
    • Next steps in implementing their Permaculture Plan

    Bur wait, there’s more!

    Swap your pre-loved Books, CDs and DVDs

    After such a successful plant & garden Crop Swap in March, we will be having a book, CD and DVD swap, along the same lines.

    Bring along your pre-read books, pre-played CDs and pre-watched DVDs and swap them for ones that you haven’t read, played or watched. 

    This is a great opportunity to recycle any books, CDs and DVDs that you no longer need.

    Free for members, $5 for guests. 

    Doors open at 6:30pm - a good time to check out our members' library & catch up with other PSN members. 

    Please join us for supper after the talk and swap.

    Living Skills Workshop:
    Making Eco-Enzymes
    May 20th

    Discover the miracle eco-enzyme. Care for the Earth, starting from your kitchen!

    Belinda Mao will run a workshop on the importance and methods of making eco-enzyme. Eco enzyme is a multipurpose liquid and its applications cover household, agriculture, animal husbandry etc. It has many household uses both in the garden and the kitchen: general cleaner, air purifier, insect repellent, laundry cleaner, skincare, organic fertiliser, anti-fungal leaf spray, pond water purifier etc

    It is easy to DIY at negligible cost, free of harmful pollutants, effective, multipurpose… On a small or large scale, eco-enzyme is produced by fermentation of fresh kitchen waste (fruit and vegetable peels), dark sugar and water. 

    Belinda will talk about how to successfully make it at home and everyone could prepare a container of ferment during the workshop. There will be also samples of finished product to take home and use straight away.

    Eco-enzyme was developed by Dr. Rosukon from Thailand. She has been actively involved in enzyme research for more than 30 years and encourages people to make eco-enzyme at home to ease global warming.

    What to bring:

    • a notebook to take notes
    • a 1.5-2l bucket-shaped container with a tight-fitting lid (such as ice cream or yoghurt bucket)
    • 300-400g of fresh vegetable and fruit kitchen scraps

    Our May permabee has us returning to Filipa's garden, at North Turramurra. 

    Filipa continues expanding her permaculture garden, following on from her 'PSN Introduction to Permaculture', moving from the front yard, to the back. 

    Last year PSN members helped bring to live a kirb orchard.   This may we move to the back creating compost bays, no dig gardens with sheet mulching...

    Further details will be added to the event as they are confirmed. 

    Kids are very welcome, though there is an un-fenced creek at the bottom of the garden. Adult supervision is essential. Please let the gardens team know if you plan to bring kids and we will ensure they are registered for the event. 

    The permabee starts at 9:30, and it's important to be there on time if possible as the day will kick off with introductions, a project briefing and safety talk.

    WHAT TO BRING...

    Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided. If you are able to bring along a little something to share for morning tea it would be appreciated.

    Please bring personal protection gear such as a enclosed shoes/ boots, hat, gloves, sunscreen and a water bottle.

    The address will be provided once registration has been completed. The address is within the emailed confirmation. 

    Any questions, please contact the Garden Team.

    Learn to use plants from your garden and your environment to make beautifully coloured fabric.

    You are invited to a workshop on natural plant dyes by India Betar, a textile artist based in Sydney (see http://indiabetar.com for examples of her works). The workshop will cover a short introduction to natural plant dyeing, with an overview of various techniques and the basic principles and tools.

    India will first demonstrate eco print dying, making sample size eco prints on silk and other materials. Then she will help to set up a solar dye jar to dye silk scarf for everyone to take home.

    It should be a very busy and productive 2hrs so please come prepared to get started on time to make the most of it.


    The cost: for PSN members $10 per person, non-members $25. Fabrics will be provided.

    What to bring:
    • Paper and pen to take notes.

    Essential:

    • 1 Large glass jar 2 Litre minimum size, screw top or preserving Air/Water tight
    • A couple of large clean pebbles, that fit inside your jar
    • String or twine, from natural fibres (plastic is not good). If you want to have a go at dyeing thread you can use that.
    • Scissors 
    • 250g plus Coloured plant material - Strong colours are best. Pale colours and green won’t give you anything much. Single plant type and single colour for best results because mixing colours doesn’t work. Petals etc can be collected and stored in the freezer in a plastic bag until the workshop. More is better.

    Examples: Tibouchina, Azaleas, Salvia bract and flower, Roses, Violas and Daisies and many more. Also foliage Prunus ‘Nigra’, Coleus, purple trad. Even coloured berries just make sure they have lots of colour when squashed between the fingers eg Dianella.

    Please don’t be tempted to buy flowers. No Oleander or camellia.  I will have some back up but not much

    Optional:

    • A mesh lingerie bag or piece of net 30cm square would do it. Will give your solar dye a more even colour result.
    • Odd bits of interesting leaves or plant bits from your garden for the eco dyeing
    • Odd bits (small, less then 20cm square) of white or pale dyed natural fabric Silk/ Wool or Hemp are best especially if you want to have a go at eco dyeing them or chucking them in your solar jar to see what happens. The more fabric you put in the jar the more dilute your results so not too much. I can’t promise you they will get used it will depend on the day.

    If you have any questions please direct them to: indiabetar@hotmail.com
