Want to know where your food is coming from? Do you like to enrich the earth as much as benefit from it?

This local organisation has many ways to support you in such an endeavour. The primary purpose of Permaculture Northern Beaches (PNB) is to share knowledge, resources, and hands-on experience with a growing community of like-minded individuals who care about the production of safe food and the practice of sustainability.

PNB is committed to the principle and practice of ecological sustainability. PNB aims to achieve this through educating ourselves and others by sharing experience, knowledge, and practical skills. Our guiding ethics are ‘Earth care, People care, and a Fair share’.

PNB aims to: Educate – Connect – Influence – Inspire – Support – Protect – Make a difference.

Permaculture Northern Beaches are currently in need of more volunteers who have some time and skills in certain areas such as events, education, and communications. 

We warmly invite volunteers that would help us tremendously! 

This Issue find out what it's all about.

This series delves into the Snapperman Beach to Sandy Point section of Palm Beach on the Pittwater side. As there are a lot of aspects to the changes - from that described by Charles De Boos in 'My Holiday' in 1861, to the installation of a jetty by the Barrenjoey Company in 1911, the development of Gows' and Gonsalves Boatshed, Goldthrope and Smith Boatshed, the creeks that once flooded the flat area, Barrenjoey House and subdivisions for homes and the changes to Palm Beach shops - this runs in sections and focus pieces compiled through research done by William James Goddard, Christine Ellis, Geoff Searl OAM, Robert Mackinnon and A J Guesdon and photos sourced from private collections and that made available by State Libraries, Australian National Archives, the National Library of Australia, NSW Records, the Australian Museum and resources tracked down in overseas institutions and through conversations with relatives.

The series will be placed into a one page overview once completed.

DIY Ideas Winter School Holiday Ideas 2024: Woodworking Projects For Beginners, An Artfull Garden, Vegepods For Little Hands, Easy To Make Lego Table Or Student Desk That Can Be Dismantled

This Issue some Winter School Holiday ideas -  woodworking projects that will get younger DIYers comfortable with the basics of building with timber, some practical and useful art that can be made at home (just in case it rains and rains), something for those who like to grow their own food, and even a few ideas to reduce the chances of stepping on bits of Lego. 

Some of the projects can be completed in a weekend and others in just a few hours. These are also projects you can do together and can be expanded, in the case of the Simple storage box, by allowing that young creative to decorate it as they choose – a mural, or flowery, or a simple paint or varnish. Then they have something they have made that may inspire cleaning up their room (only joking!) and which they will have for years to come.

Food Vegetable Bhajis + Are Plant-Based Burgers Really Bad For Your Heart? Here’s What’s Behind The Scary Headlines

If you’re one who cannot eat a huge amount of ‘animal protein’ but run around a lot and need heaps of energy, then this dish, a variation on the onion bhaji theme, may be for you. We make a big batch of them to use in sandwiches, as burgers, and as a main meal the first night they’re cooked. These are a more substantial form of Pakoras, which are also made with Besan flour. You can alternate the vegetables to suit what is seasonal or your own tastes. Making up a batch of onion ones at the same time for those who prefer the traditional recipe will keep everyone happy.

Chickpeas are high in protein and Australia is the world's second largest producer of these behind India. They are an excellent source of essential nutrients such as iron, folate, phosphorus, protein and dietary fibre. Chickpeas are also low in fat and what they do contain is polyunsaturated. There has also been some research that has shown that chickpea consumption may lower blood cholesterol.
