10.30 am to 1 pm. Ecovillage Open Day – tours and talk.
1.30 pm. Monthly Network speakers.
Nev says, “We will be talking about who we are and what we do here at the choko tree. We will describe the systems we use to grow our own food, produce our own energy and treat our wastewater, while giving you a virtual tour of our 600m2 permaculture paradise!”
From fertilizer sausages to renovating a bug hotel, food preserving and cooking with the sun, Nev & Linda Sweeney have been sharing their experiences with others for years. They are both members of Permaculture Sydney West and their home and garden was again part of the annual Sustainable House day.
The Sweeneys have also appeared on Gardening Australia with Costa Georgiadis and continue to share their knowledge on their website http://www.underthechokotree.com/
And via their Facebook page: Under The Choko Tree.
