A bite-sized workshop giving you a basic understanding of Permaculture at its best and most sustainable. Farm manager Cal Champagne demonstrates how permaculture principles have been employed to transform an unused 11-acre piece of land into the thriving and diverse urban farm and community hub that is Green Connect Farm.

This 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.

Your teacher Cal Champagne has been the manager of Green Connect Farm since its establishment. After growing up on a permaculture demonstration property on the Far South Coast of NSW, Cal moved the Illawarra to study environmental sciences at UOW. He then went on to postgraduate studies in Sustainable Food Systems at the University of Sydney. During his studies, he got involved in permaculture in the Illawarra, through his volunteer work in the ‘Living Classroom’ school gardens at local schools. When an 11-acre piece of land adjacent to Warrawong High School was made available, Cal joined Green Connect. The team turned this land into what is now Green Connect farm, one of the country’s leading examples of urban agriculture.
