I know it only stays open a week or so so please pass on to anyone who might have been waiting. It's taken me over 4 years to do excited. If anyone joins up maybe we can form a support group.

  • Hi Justin,

    I did a quick search on Google and found this interesting project - growing berries rich in anti-oxidants and all sorts of goodies. And some of them are planted in fibonacci spirals - interesting question though:

    Your seed ball making proposal was good; if there was more advance notice then I probably could've been there.

Has anyone got worms (i.e. red wigglers) to give away?

Hi, I've got everything ready to start a worm bin, only "thing" left are..the fantastic worms. Wondering if there's someone out there running a worm composting bin with red wigglers (or the likes) and happy to give away even a few. I don't mind starting with just a handful and less than the target amount and letting them increase their population to sustainable numbers.

What next?

I want to release this by talking and learning more about transition town initatives around our planet that could inspire us, by hearing what others are thinking and feeling, and by continuing to learn more permaculture design and self…

Christchurch-west Permaculture group starting up

Hello all; I'm starting up a sub-group: a Christchurch-west Permaculture group, for people & projects on the west-side of Christchurch.  We can meet at the Okeover Community Gardens, on the Canterbury University Grounds.  For me, such a group closer to where I live and work is better, so I can bicycle or walk to our meetings and projects ... but I hope for more projects than meetings!  (More do, and less talk!) We can help with each other's own garden projects, have potluck meals, watch…
