Subject: interested in community supported permaculture/city farms
[Note: this letter arrived today from a student in Australia. If anyone
has a reply for her then please Cc: us & her address above. Jennifer -
we'd be happy to have you join our Tree-House email forum. While we are
predominantly for tree-planting within human settlements (urban forestry),
Permaculture issues are among our recurrent threads. Simply email me your
intentions & I'll sign you right up. List operator: Richard@Flora.Com] ...
I've been searching the Internet lately for any information on community
supported agriculture, (CSA) or any city farm projects that involve the
community in the organisation, the farming and the return. I am specifically
interested in organic, biodynamic and permaculture based farms designed for
a sustainable future in production. To fill you in a bit more on exactly
where I'm coming from, you might have already guessed I am a student. I
attend Southern Cross University which is located in Lismore, Northern
N.S.W, Australia, six months from completing a Bachelor of Applied Science,
Conservation Technology. The only thing now that stands in my way is an
integrated research project. I have designed the project to cover issues
such as permaculture and its integration within the community and
alternative agricultural practices for a sustainable future.
I have been in contact with the city farm in Lismore whos vision is to
operate a commercially viable and environmentally sustainable farm-based
enterprise drawing on community and permaculture resources.
Anyway where you fit into all of this and the reason for which I write is to
request any information you could offer to a poor struggling student on any
of these topics.
Your help would be much appreciated
