Permaculture in Port Kembla - Part 2 "Warrawong High School"

In PART TWO Benn takes us to the beginnings of a Permaculture restoration project at Warrawong High School. This project is of particular interest as it has the children at the school heavily involved at every stage of the project and because the land is being rehabilitated after being filled with coal sludge and waste from local industry. It's really good to see Permaculture spreading like wild fire in an area that according to some reports (en.wikipedia.org has significant environmental problems caused by the heavy industry of the area which makes significant emissions of nitrogen oxides and other dangerous gases. Gas emissions also result in the formation of acid rain which has caused spotting of metal surfaces and the rapid corrosion of many structures.
