International Permaculture Day is on again- May 5th 2013

int permaculture day may 2013Thought you may like to appreciate that International Permaculture day is almost on us again for another year. May 5th 2013. Although Aquaponics can stand alone as a super vegetable growing system, a successful balanced Aquaponics system uses many of the same permaculture design elements. This annual event is a great day filled with education and passionate likeminded people.  Last year i opened up my home Aquaponics grow beds, gardens and fish ponds up to the public on this day. This year i’ll be visiting some other backyards to check them to see what inventive things people are doing and i encourage you to do the same!

MEDIA RELEASE: “You can fix all the world’s problems in a garden… You can solve all your pollution problems, and all your supply line needs in a garden. And most people today actually don’t

know that, and that makes most people very insecure.”- Geoff Lawton, Permaculture Research Institute

Geoff Lawton should know. He turned a strip of desert in Jordan into an abundant food forest that will provide food for people for generations to come. And that’s just one of many permaculture solutions being pioneered around the world. We can’t ignore that the world is in crisis. The fresh food, clean air and secure income that so many of us take for granted is no longer a given. No community is immune when we depend on fossil fuels and debt, cheap labour

and food flown thousands of miles. If we don’t create more sustainable supply lines, then we face the prospect of collapse. The good news is that we can survive this and even thrive, if we act now.

This year’s International Permaculture theme is Grow Local! to highlight the value of permaculture design for building local resilience. By using the tools of permaculture and a

little community spirit, we can start to meet our basic energy, clean water and fresh food needs, right in our own gardens.
