Like to know more about permaculture? Then note May 28 for the next Slow Food breakfast meeting at Blue Ginger Restaurant.
The guest speaker Leonie Shanahan, who is at the forefront of the edible school garden programs on the Coast, will tell you everything you could ever want to know about permaculture.
Leonie has set up Kitchen gardens in 13 schools and taught students about permaculture design and assisted the students in designing their own edible school garden.
Parents, grandparents and the school community then come together to set up the children's permaculture vegetable garden with worm farms, compost systems, lots of vegie gardens,herbs,and some fruit trees.
Over the 12 months, Leonie teaches all aspects of organic gardening and waste management.
Then during a harvest celebration, Slow Food provides chefs to cook the produce with the students. The students make up the tables and decorate them with flowers and everyone eats together. the projects are a hugely rewarding experience for all involved.
So at the breakfast hear Leonie speak about the four school projects Slow Food has sponsored, and enjoy some of the produce from the Peregian Beach Community College Slow Food Kitchen Garden.
Some of the students will also be there to answer your questions.
The Blue Ginger Restaurant, Evergreen Centre, Eummundi Road, Noosaville on Thursday, May 28, 8.30am.
Cost is $23 for members; $26 for non-members. Contact Anne Briggs on 5474 5585 or email Slowfoodnoosa3@bigpond.com.
