May Meeting Minutes

So last week the freo permies got together for the monthly meeting, those that attended were Elizabeth, Jodie, Craig, May-Ring, Matt, Fiona, Martine, Aidan and new member Cat Hammond. The things that were discussed were: Farmers Market-first planned trial display/stall didnt happen due to insurance issues(but can be worked around for future), insurance coverage re blitzes and all members are encouraged to become financial members of PermacultureWest and PermacultureWest to be notified of all Freo Permies events by Jodie.

The upcoming blitzes are Aidan’s on July 30th and Elizabeth’s on june 25th.

The subject of the 2016 Annual Permaculture Convergence was raised, with discussion about wether freo permies want to hold a stall at it or just assist PermacultureWest with the proceedings and it was decided that we are in preference of just assisting rather than holding a stall.

As far as other upcoming events goes, there was a garden tour for october, a trip away, mushrooms, Peter Coppin fruit tree pruning workshop and social meeting discussed.

Other business raised was a freo permies casa de espanol social night(for a wednesday), and the organisation of a group buying scheme which Matt is to discuss with Ruth further.

 

Next meeting is set for wednesday 29th june at Aidan’s house!
