Growing your own food in your backyard brings peace and joy to the home.

Have you ever wanted to grow your own food and wondered where to start?

Join Kathryn and Jo at Northern suburbs community centre on Friday August 16 from 10am to 2pm.

We will start the day by making our own sourdough bread to share with a wholesome soup made from garden produce for lunch.

As an example, we will wallk you through permaculture design principles used in the kitchen garden design for the Northern Suburb Community Centre.

Bring your ideas and after lunch we will guide you on how to design your garden for maximum benefit based on the local environment.

There will be the opportunity to put your hands in the soil and plant some herbs, with kitchen garden plants to give away so you can begin your garden at home.

Everybody welcome.

Pre-Peace Festival Event at Pilgrim

Permaculture promotes PEACE through food self-reliance.

Permaculturists and Quakers in Launceston have joined with the Women’s Friendship Group to bring you a foretaste of the August Tamar Valley PEACE FESTIVAL - in a July evening at Pilgrim Church. 

Rosemary (Rowe) Morrow, a Quaker and permaculture teacher has just returned from working in refugee camps and settlement from Bangladesh to Greece.  As background to this work, she spent decades working with villagers and farmers in some of the poorest parts of the world, and has dedicated much time to the hungry people of war-torn nations such as Vietnam, Cambodia, East Timor and Afghanistan.  From this it was a natural transition to work in refugee and displaced persons camps in Malaysia, Iraq, Bangladesh and Europe. 

 

Where there is a choice, Rowe chooses to work with women (women and children are the greatest victims of war)  and has teamed with a number of organisations such as Quaker Service Australia and Mahboba’s Promise.

An important part of the training she provides is Training the Trainer both in the camps and in local organisations so the teaching continues long after she has moved to another place.  Refugees are supported by local people who also participate so the integration of locals and refugees is made happily.

For supper, buy and enjoy wholesome Afghan soup and bread prepared and sold by local Afghan Hazara women.  The women will also prepare & sell traditional Afghan desserts.  Locally produced ingredients will be used as much as possible.

During the Peace Festival, on Friday 16th August, there will be a Permaculture Design and Planning workshop.

WHO?             All welcome - especially those concerned for PEACE and FOOD SECURITY

WHEN?            Saturday 13th July at 5.45 for 6 pm until 8.30 pm

WHERE?          Pilgrim Uniting Church, Paterson St, Launceston

COST?             FREE entry.  Donations encouraged towards Rowe’s work.

Supper for sale.
