Permaculture and Composting💚

We love good dirt at Going Green Solutions and this week we’re sharing a couple of fave kinds; permaculture and compost! In honour of International Composting Awareness Week and International Permaculture Day. 

We thought we’d combine them both and share some permaculture and composting stories from other people and a couple of our own, as well as some great products and more info.  

FYI, we’ve got heaps more info and how-to's on our YouTube Channel ‘The Gradual Greenie - Going Green Solutions’. Happy browsing in our green dirt stories!  😁        

A great start to learning about a life less ordinary for kids… A is for activism, B is for baking, C is for compost… P is for Permaculture
A simple portable guide that introduces you to a broad overview of permaculture that allows you to hit the ground running.  Permaculture Guide
The Retrosuburbia 592 page manual shows how Australians can downshift and retrofit their homes, gardens, communities and, above all, themselves to be more self-organised, sustainable and resilient into an uncertain future.
