The Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast will be closed from Wednesday 19 December until Thursday 3 January. Please email us on info [at] permaculture sunshinecoast.org for enquiries or bookings during this time.
Our New Year’s resolution for 2013 is to share our Permaculture Demonstration site with as many people who want to learn as possible. To share our knowledge and to provide people with solutions rather than problems. To embrace and respect people’s differences, and to work with them to find their talents and passions. To grow more food and to cook and prepare more food from the garden for the students on the property. To enjoy and be thankful for every minute of life given to us. To surround ourselves with music, joy and happiness.
We wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic 2013!
