One of Bill Mollison’s original principles of Permaculture states, “The Problem is the Solution.” This concept has been embraced by Permaculturists around the world, but if you are new to Permaculture this may seem an absurd statement. In reality, this principle is a powerful design tool in Permaculture. Maybe a clearer way to say it would be, “In the problem lies the solution.”
The meeting will be interactive where people will have an opportunity to discuss their experiences and examples. What has worked well and what they have learned. Those that a new to the idea can ask questions and learn from others.

Permaculture Noosa monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Beginning at 7pm with a market place where members share their surplus home grown produce and plants by giving, exchanging or selling. Ending with supper at 9pm. Gold coin donation for non-members. All welcome.
With the success of the November & January meetings where we trialled a new format, the meeting on Thursday 18 February 2016 will follow on with the theme of “ The Problem is the Solution”.
Permaculture Noosa is an ideal group to be a part of for anyone new to the area and setting up a garden. There are many members who have skills and knowledge to share and others who are new to the concepts.
