President's Message
Welcome to Meeting No.73

This week's meeting material
  • Charter Lunch Video - a 17 minute extract of this important club event held on 19 November at Cranbourne. Please let me know if you can't open it.
  • Rotary Foundation named World's Outstanding Foundation for 2016
  • The Power of Permaculture: An Enthusiastic Introduction - In this video, UMASS student Ryan Harb tells the TEDx audience in Utica, New York State, about the permaculture project he initiated back in 2010 which resulted in the first public university permaculture garden in the United States. During the talk he gives a very succinct definition of permaculture and how it can practically apply to “all people, not just those of us who are privileged”. If you are new to the concept of permaculture or would like a clear and simple explanation of it, this could be a very effective video to watch.
