Newcastle Libraries, Purple Pear Farm, Permaculture Hunter and and Slow Food Hunter Valley are organising a Fair Share Community Day at Laman St, Cooks Hill in Newcastle, on Saturday 22 June 2019, the Winter Solstice.

This will co-incide with the visit from Victoria of David Holmgren, who co-originated the Permaculture design system with the late Bill Mollison in the 1970’s in Tasmania.  Since then, Permaculture has grown into a worldwide movement incorporating regenerative principles for living beyond sustainability, beyond approaches for living sustainably and growing food easily.

We are calling this event our own EcoSuburbia, in honour of David’s new book, RetroSuburbia, and like other Fair Share events, it will be a great family day featuring music, stalls, workshops and talks.

David’s talk will be from 2pm – 4pm in Civic Hall with free tickets at http://bit.ly/30jEI4L, with bookings essential (check for a wait list link too).
