PSN Monthly Meeting - Monday 16 March 2015

Frogs of Sydney & How to Make them Feel at Home - Martyn Robinson

Ever wonder what kind of frog is making that weird noise in your drainpipe? Curious about which frog those tadpoles will grow into? Keen to attract frogs to your garden?
Naturalist Martyn Robinson from the Australian Museum knows his frogs. And his insects, spiders, worms, birds, and frankly anything that you might find crawling, sliding, hopping or flying in your backyard!

Martyn is back by popular demand to speak at the March gathering of Permaculture Sydney North (PSN) at the Lindfield Community Centre, on Monday 16th March 2015 at 7pm. All welcome!

If you have frogs you want to identify, bring some pictures or recordings of their calls.

And if you heard Martyn entertain last year at PSN back in 2013 and were inspired to build ponds or bat houses or bee homes, please bring photos and stories to share with Martyn.

March Mushroom Hunt - Blue Mountains

This is the first mushroom hunt in 2015 and the registrations are open to members only!
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 and also learn how to preserve the bounty. 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.

If you would like to register please click the button to the left or email mmossakowska@yahoo.com.au

                             

Open your garden for International Permaculture Day 2015!

International Permaculture Day on Sunday May 3 2015 is a day of celebration and demonstration of all things Permaculture happening around the world. If you garden demonstrates elements of permaculture, why not open your garden on IPD for people to visit, enjoy and benefit from the exchange of information and knowledge of other permies and those interested in finding out more.

Please submit a description of your garden, location, opening hours, and a photograph to Belinda via shows@permaculturenorth.org.au.




 

Searching for PSN Permabees for 2015

Permabees are permaculture working bees where a group of people get together to complete a permaculture project in a day.

If you have a Permaculture Plan and would like help in realising your dreams, we would love to assist.

Maybe you need assistance to prepare your garden for International Permaculture Day (May 4th) or Sustainable House Day (Sept). We can also assist here as well.

As they say, many hands make light work. Not only do you benefit from the members labour on the day, our members also benefit by gaining new skills and knowledge, as well as enjoying one another's company.

PSN tend to do out Permabees on the 3rd Sunday of the month, however we are flexible to meet the needs of garden owners.
The Garden Team can be contacted via email at

 garden@permaculturenorth.org.au to discuss opportunities to assist you.
We look forward to hearing from you!


Don't forget Facebook! 

Our facebook page is rocking! It's an excellent place for finding out what's going on in and around our area in a broader context.

You can interact with like minded permies to share ideas, pose questions, post interesting articles and find out what courses and events are happening in our region and around the world.
