PASA held a great day of fun food and festivities at the Food Forest, Gawler. Over 80 people came from far and wide – people from way up North, way down South, and everywhere in between! We had a great tour of the Brookman’s property, followed by a delicious shared BBQ feast, complete with wine and homemade cordial. We then held a Transition Town-style World Cafe event, where people sat in groups of 4 or 5 and discussed the question “How can we facilitate more localised permaculture action in our own neighbourhoods/communities?” Each group talked for 15 mins, with an appointed note-taker writing down people’s thoughts and ideas, and then all the groups swapped randomly ready for the next 15 mins of discussion. For the third and final 15 min discussion, we arranged the groups into local neighbourhoods/bioregions to allow people to meet each other and work out ways they could help to act in their own regions. Everyone generated a lot of energy and enthusiasm as a result of the event, and it will be great to see what evolves out of the initial discussions people had. We winded up the afternoon hearing from a handful of past PDC graduates, who had some amazing stories to tell of their adventures after the life-changing PDC at the Food Forest! After snacking on a few more delicious dried fruit and nuts and chatting with friends, the day was over – thanks everyone for helping out (especially the Brookmans for hosting the event), and for making it such a great day.
