AGM 2017 Invitation – We wish to invite you to Span’s Annual General Meeting
To be held on Thursday 30th March 2017 at 7.00 pm
Our guest speaker will be Kat Lavers who is a winner in this year’s Darebin and Banyule Sustainability Awards. Kat was the winner of the Home and Garden category
Kat Lavers is a passionate gardener, permaculture designer and facilitator. She has taught permaculture in Australia and with nomadic herders and aid agency staff in Mongolia. In her former role at Cultivating Community she used a bobcat and 500,000 compost worms to compost café food waste in the City of Yarra. She currently coordinates the My Smart Garden program for Hobsons Bay City Council and offers freelance permaculture and gardening coaching and classes. Her award-winning house and garden, ‘The Plummery’, is a 1/14th of an acre urban permaculture system that produces almost all the vegies, herbs, fruit and eggs consumed (more than 350kg in 2016), as well as recycling all organic waste on site and harvesting the majority of power and water used by the household. There is also a retrofitted light earth studio made from onsite clay and scavenged materials. Kat is a volunteer coordinator of Permablitz Melbourne.
The formal part of the part of the AGM will be held, after which we invite you to join us for refreshments to celebrate the achievements of Span over the last 12 months.
