    WOW! We did it... the cause got completed and the Permaculture project out at Yarrabah was a huge success it made the Gathering the gathering and so an enourmous hands up to all those actively involved in the sourcing of the materials, trucking the materials, shipping, carting, buidling, measuring, digging, cutting, brushing, easing, flexing, coping, tracking, coordinating, expertising and more and more of many skills were used in the whole process of building the Project the way we did.


    many seeds were indeed sown and Permaculture is a word now know in the community of Yarrabah, certainly all the elders know about it and more projects are on the dream line for 2013. We are actively connected with the PBC of Yarrabah and are furthering conversations on different levels about next years projects, community help, garden expansions etc etc.

    REALLY , this cause caused a whole ripple of great nature and the effects of your contributions will be known for a long while into the future!


    More updates to come in early 2013 as we will further the dream seeds that were planted during the Elder Gathering. We hope you will be part of the dreaming now and then.

     Great news! On they have launched a Permaculture fundraiser project for the global elders gathering at Yarrabah, Australia. 

    During the Total Solar Eclipse in November this year there will be held a Gathering of Indigenous Elders and Wisdom Keepers. 

    This a non for profit, free energy event. 

    The Gungandji Elders have have put out a calling for support to realize this vision and a wide group of like minded Permaculture people from the Far North Region in Queensland, Australia, have heard the calling, but they need our support! 

    They are ready to start working together with the Yarrabah community to ensure the accommodation, shelter, infrastructure and much more is secured for this Gathering. 

    I appreciate your time and energy for the following: Please watch the video, read the projects objectives and more about the Global Elders Gathering. 

    Explore what this cause has to offer to us as a broader community and donate.

    The Gunggandji Elders are calling us to respond and work together. Permaculture systems are already being developed and deployed; will you step up and help us achieve our modest practical project, in order to assist the Gungganji Council of Elders achieve their powerful vision?

    May we ask of you to please offer some time and read about the cause (you are free to forward it to anyone you feel inclined to) and of course, most important, donate to the cause. 

    May we encourage and count on you for support? 

    We trust that through our collective efforts this cause can and will be funded. -
