    • Food Miles
      The Average Australian Basket of food has travelled over 70 000km from producer to consumer. (Anna Salleh 2007)
      This distance means the energy consumed in food freight often outweighs the nutritional energy in the food itself
      (Australian Conservation Foundation 2009)
      e.g.:
      1000Kj
      170Kj
    • Go Local!

    • Permaculture
      Permaculture = Permanent agriculture
      It is a self sustaining system which thinks about the productive landscape in terms of an ecology which considers relationships rather than individual elements
      Zoning
      there are 5 Permaculture zones which are differentiated by their usefulness. There are no clearly defined borders between the growing zones in a permaculture design zones need not be of a circular or any regular shape.
      Sector Planning
      Sectors deal with the natural elements in your landscape: sun, light, wind, rain, fire and water flow
    • Windsor Permaculture System
    • Urban and Rural Markets
    • Education Campaign
    • Tourism Policy
    • Conversion of public & private Land
    • PermaUrban Network Staging
      2009: Public Awareness and Perception Policy

      2011: Construction of the AgOrbital Light Rail System
      2011: Urban permaculture conversions
