National Permaculture Day 1st May

SBS’s Greek Garden Guru, Costa,  of  ‘Costa’s Garden Odyssey’ fame, hit the Sunshine Coast to celebrate National Permaculture Day on Sunday May 1st at the ‘award-winning’ Yandina Community Gardens. (The Gardens were the recipients of the Sunshine Coast Council’s “Glossies” Award for Edible Landscapes in 2010).


In a rare bout of glorious weather, Costa opened the celebrations to a large crowd and spent the day wandering around the gardens, talking with locals and visitors.  As gardeners everywhere have embraced Costa’s all-consuming passion for plants and people, permaculture members were thrilled that Costa would take the time out of his extremely busy schedule to visit us and share his infectious character and passion for the soil, embracing nature’s cycles and seasons, and nurturing our soul with gardening.

There were also wonderful presentations from the likes of Bob Cameron from RockCote,  speaking on pizza cob ovens;  Murray Hallam of Practical Aquaponics, talking all things aquaponics;  Elisabeth Fekonia of Permaculture RealFood speaking on sub-tropical plants and  Rosina Buckman sharing her passion on backyard chooks.

National Permaculture Day was proudly sponsored by Permaculture Noosa, Yandina Community Gardens and Edible School Gardens.
