We have had a number of people express interest in a permablitz this year.  Permablitzes offer so many rewards – it’s a fabulous day of conversation, learning, connection, and of course progressing your landscape design.  From acreage to a small back yard, laying irrigation pipes, to weeding and everything in between, it’s a great skill share opportunity in a friendly environment.  Children are always welcome as they are the permies of the future!  If a blitz appeals to you, simply email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

2013 PCM AGM reconvened

Although a lot of great stuff was achieved at the PCM AGM on October 13, more time was needed for discussion of the draft Constitution, so the meeting was postponed and is to be reconvened on November 17.

The Constitutional issue being discussed relates to how or whether Local Groups and Special Interest Groups are represented on Trunk.  Should they have automatic representation?  What if they don't want to send a rep?  How do 'non-associated' members find representation?

We will also vote on the first and third motions that were part of the original special business. 

Motion 3 is that PCM change it's name to Permaculture Victoria.  Several BPG members are opposing this motion, due to concerns about whether PCM will be able to represent permaculture across the state when several large groups of permies have no connection with PCM.  On the flipside, PCM is clearly operating beyond the boundaries of Melbourne!  What do you think?  You can have a view by sending a proxy vote to PCM Secretary Jo McLeay at least 24 hrs before the meeting date.
