About Pete Blake
Like a lot of people my age born in Western Australia, I grew up in an urban setting, quarter acre block, with parents and grandparents who came from farming backgrounds. So large vegie patches, fruit trees, chooks and compost bays were a part of life at that point...
My introduction to Permaculture, as a design system, grew from an interest in Health, Well-being and alternate spiritual interests, where I gained an awareness of organics, sustainable choices and living within the seasonal cycles. And thanks to Gardening Australia's segments on Permaculture and Organic Gardening with Josh Byrne...
My family thinks I am obsessed with permaculture and gardening, but what part of life does it not influence...
I am also currently a member of Permaculture West, and the Hills Local Permaculture Group. http://permaculturewest.org.au/community/local-groups/hlpg
