Event description
Permaculturist Rowe Morrow shares about her work helping the world's hungriest people feed themselves. Local Hazara women provide supper.

About this Event

Rosemary (Rowe) Morrow, a Quaker and permaculture teacher has just returned from working in refugee camps and settlement from Bangladesh to Greece. As background to this work, she spent decades working with villagers and farmers in some of the poorest parts of the world, and has dedicated much time to the hungry people of war-torn nations such as Vietnam, Cambodia, East Timor and Afghanistan. From this it was a natural transition to work in refugee and displaced persons camps in Malaysia, Iraq, Bangladesh and Europe.

Where there is a choice, Rowe chooses to work with women (women and children are the greatest victims of war) and has teamed with a number of organisations such as Quaker Service Australia and Mahboba’s Promise.

An important part of the training she provides is Training the Trainer both in the camps and in local organisations so the teaching continues long after she has moved to another place. Refugees are supported by local people who also participate so the integration of locals and refugees is made happily.

For supper, buy and enjoy wholesome Afghan soup and bread prepared and sold by local Afghan Hazara women. The women will also prepare & sell traditional Afghan desserts. Locally produced ingredients will be used as much as possible.
