(projects i'm involved in)
After a 15 year wait (corporate career, husband and 2 gorgeous sons), I *finally* managed to study my PDC with Naomi and Rick Coleman at Leongatha in Victoria in 2005.
My permaculture knowledge was put to use in the design and development of the Gisborne Montessori School with husband, Maurice, and fellow parent Linda Shewan. My permie passion for Zone 0 has transmogrified into a green home retrofit business that ensured our Zones 1 -5 did not continue with any notable progress!!
However, we are pleased to report that our home, which use to produce twice the national average greenhouse gas emissions is a zero emission home (permanently). See www.ecomaster.com.au
We are now dusting off our permie plans for our 11 acre property and would welcome visitors who wish to experience Australian lifestyle 50 kms north west of Melbourne to move the next stage of our plans forward. We have chickens, orchard, veggie garden but much work is required!!
