Green Connects ‘A Taste of Permaculture’ gives will you a basic understanding of Permaculture and demonstrate how permacultures principles have been employed to transform an unused 12-acre piece of land into a thriving and diverse urban farm and community hub.

The workshop will begin by introducing the ethics and principles that underpin permaculture and discussing the ways in which they can be used to design systems that are both sustainable and abundant. We then go straight into the farm to explore the various levels of Green Connects holistic site design and land management practices.

Meet the chickens, bees, pigs and sheep, and learn how they have been integrated into perennial food systems to help repair the land and yield ethically raised produce; Walk the creek line to see how bringing back indigenous rainforest species as part of a biodiversity belt is helping to create a diverse ecosystem that complements our food production; Understand the sustainable cropping techniques that produce veggies and herbs for households, restaurants and cafes throughout the Illawarra; Learn how nutrients are recycled throughout the farm to create production and efficiency rather than waste; and hear how permaculture has been used as a vehicle for empowering former refugees, young people, and the wider community.

This tour includes a morning tea and some take-home notes. The tour is for anyone interested in permaculture design, regenerative agriculture, backyard gardening, market gardening, urban agriculture, local food systems, sustainable and ethical animal management, fairness for agricultural workers, recycling organic waste, or the role of native restoration in agricultural landscapes.
