What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a sustainable design system that provides for human needs while having positive effects on the surrounding environment.

It is based on the ethics of earth care, people care and fair share, and provides practical solutions to the global crises we are currently facing.

Permaculture is for EVERYONE, regardless of their education, background, or previous experience.

Permaculture is NOT just about trees, or just about gardening! You don't need loads of land to practice it and it's a design method that can be applied to all social systems.

Support our Project

We'll use your donations to further our plans to plant more trees and vines.

We’re so happy to see these go. Broom is incredibly flammable, and having a giant impenetrable thicket of them (belonging to our neighbour) so close to […]

Can’t Beat It!

 

You really couldn’t beat the view from yesterday’s work spot. We were doing a spot of work exchange with a friend. Tough work, cutting and hauling these burnt pines, but followed by a picnic on the walk back which couldn’t be beaten.

Land Clearance

Land clearance is the project of the moment, with the deadline for clearing land next to the road fast approaching.

Today’s area to tidy up – the hugel edge next to the road We’d allowed these pines to grow as a privacy screen, but most need to go.

Many of the trees are […]
