One subscriber to this bulletin with a demonstrated commitment to sustainable living is Paul Fogarty. Paul is a member of the team promoting the concept of a Permablitz which aims to build community networks and share skills related to permaculture and sustainable living particularly through the development of edible gardens.

Paul is a member of the team offering a two day introductory course in permaculture on the weekend of Sep 22-23 at CERES (the Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies) in suburban Melbourne.

Permaculture adopts techniques and principles from ecology, appropriate technology, sustainable agriculture, and the wisdom of indigenous peoples. The ethical basis of permaculture rests upon care of the earth by maintaining a system in which all life can thrive. This includes human access to resources and provisions, but not the accumulation of wealth, power, or land beyond their needs.
