The group are focusing on ‘Permaculture’ during March with a series of library talks from local regenerative farmer and permaculture practitioner Megan Seiler:

“Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving; we get stronger and more resilient ..Dr Steve Maraboli“.. especially insightful in the face of rising costs, lack of housing and uncertainty across the globe. It may seem that it is a downward spiral but we are all slowly finding ways to cope with change and becoming stronger. One such set of principles and tools that may resonate with our practical proactive South Burnett residents is Permaculture.

A term coined in 1970, Permaculture was an Australian invention and has become not only a logical way to look after the environment and provide food, fibre and fuel for your families needs but also a low cost, carbon neutral way of promoting better community practices. The three ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share are expanded on with Principles relevant to everything from industry to the home.

The South Burnett Sustainability Network is continuing its efforts to promote community wide ways to cope with changes for our planet, country and local community.

On the 24th of March Megan Seiler a local Permaculture farmer, educator and planner will hold a talk, Q and A garden session called ‘Resilience and Life Abundance through Permaculture ‘ at 10am at Kingaroy Library and 1pm at Nanango Library. These sessions are suitable for everyone from teenagers to senior citizens, farmers and office workers. Bill Mollison, founder of Permaculture famously claimed the “Problem is the Solution.“ Megan invites local residents to explore this conundrum! There will also be free give away and prizes.

Megan has practiced permaculture in the local area for over 30 years with a passion for sustainability, conservation and practical food self reliance since her teens. Any questions ring 0437792779 for details of the day.

The South Burnett Sustainability Network is always eager to hear from all community members who are wanting to help strengthen community resilience for our future.
