This two day (over two weekends) intensive is part theory, part practical and will immerse you in the ethics, principles and framework to help you design a sustainable and abundant life.
You will learn some useful skills and gather great ideas for designing a permaculture oasis on your apartment balcony, in your home garden, street or community.
Some of the topics covered will include:
- The ethics and design principles
- Energy and nutrient cycling
- Veggie and fruit growing systems
- Animals in permaculture
- Energy efficient buildings
There will be examples from tiny urban gardens to suburban and rural permaculture properties showing how we can create resilient, sustainable systems that work with nature and the natural limits of our planet.
With its orchards, animals, water and energy harvesting systems and no-dig vegetable gardens, Edendale provides a great opportunity to study a permaculture property in action.
Please come prepared to be inside and outside. Wear comfortable clothes, sturdy footwear & bring a raincoat, hat, sunscreen - i.e. come prepared for Melbourne weather!
