The About Regional team just got bigger and smarter.
Permaculturalist Kathleen McCann joins our ranks of collaborators under the banner of “growing food.”
Kathleen started her business Luscious Landscapes in response to concern for the future of our natural environment and the sustainability of human life.
She offers a different approach to garden and landscape design by using techniques and practices that stem from permaculture design models.
Permaculture is a world-wide movement of designers, teachers, & grassroots activists working to restore damaged ecosystems and human communities.
It is inspired by practical techniques and principles from the study of natural systems which can be applied to our own backyards for growing food and people.
Its aim is to create systems that will sustain the present as well as future generations.
Kathleen’s connection with the South Coast of NSW goes back some 40 years or more.
She has always had a garden, but it was a permaculure course with Brogo master John Champagne in 2004 where the permaculture die was cast and set.
Kathleen continued her studies in permaculture practices over the next few years and is now a qualified permaculture teacher. She regularly delivers workshops and training courses on all things permaculture and garden throughout south east NSW.
She brings that wisdom and a healthy cackle of laughter, to About Regional and will write regularly, helping you grow food in this changing climate.
This network of collaborators started a few weeks back with Kate Burke from Raisin taking on regional science, we take another step forward with Kathleen McCann.
About Regional is a platform where country people of integrity, humour and knowledge can share what they know and think.
Regional experts who help us all get the most out of life, watch this space.
