Kevin Upward from the Men’s Shed gave us a brief presentation about their project and are inviting Permaculture members and people within the community to participate.
The Sunshine Valley Men’s Shed are the beneficiaries of 4.5 acres of ex-strawberry farm which they intend to turn over to a Permaculture garden for the benefit of the Sunshine Valley Community.

The property is adjacent to The Men’s Shed in Blackall Range Road, West Woombye. They are about to start forming the parent beds and are well aware that it is going to be a slow ongoing project.

On Saturday, 19th of May from 10.30 am, Councillor Jenny McKay will be attending to lay the first bits of cardboard & mulch etc. Everyone is welcome to attend to view the plan and if possible, offer advice on how to set the garden up from a Permaculture perspective.
Keith is hoping to put on a sausage sizzle and will be inviting like-minded groups and individuals to attend.
