2020 AGM round up

It was great to meet and catch up with everyone who attended the Permaculture Tasmania (PT) Annual General Meeting at RESEED on Saturday 19 September. The AGM Meeting video, Minutes and Reports are available to members through the members portal.

News from the day includes welcoming Melissa Thurling and James Cleave to the PT Committee.
Melissa joins us as Secretary (commencing in early November) and James’ ongoing work on our website development and tech support at events has been formalised as he officially joins the PT crew. We look forward to further introducing Melissa and James to the membership.

AGM proceedings and discussions on the day highlighted that our volunteers are committed to providing members with ongoing value in 2021 and beyond. Amidst challenges of covid times, this will include the invitation to our membership for greater input on PT’s direction going forward.

For now the role of president remains vacant. Details about the role are available here if you are keen to get involved with bringing about these changes. And we are thrilled to have a nominee available in the new year if the role remains vacant at that time.
We shall advertise for expressions of interest in committee roles assisting with communication through social media, our website and newsletter so stay tuned đŸ™‚

Nick Towle, co-directer of RESEED, introduces RESEED at the beginning of the property tour.

If you missed the RESEED taster tour that followed the AGM you can still catch it on our YouTube channel here.

Nick Towle, co-directer of RESEED, explains how sloped banks of the orchard had been used by previous stewards of the property and the ideal way to collect nuts from a possible future orchard extension.

Two enjoyable afternoon discussion sessions – alternative economies (led by Nick Towle and Robin Krabbe) & permaculture and climate change (led by Nick Towle and Caroline Smith) provided thought provoking ideas, lively discussion and resources for follow up.

An enormous thanks once again to Nick, Michelle and the awesome team at RESEED for hosting us, providing an incredible homemade lunch and refreshments offering, all within covid safe guideline! What legends.
