Garden to Table Permaculture will ‘open their doors’ to the public on Sunday May 1st to celebrate International Permaculture Day. We’ll showcase a permaculture demonstration site, including the outside of the rammed earth home and permaculture gardens, at Pacific Palms, just 3 hrs drive north of Sydney.
Do you want to learn about living a more sustainable way of life, how to grow your own food and meet other like – minded people? Then this tour is for you!
Nestled amongst a Eucalyptus forest on 8 acres, owners Megan and Justin Cooke are combining their skills of teaching permaculture and natural earth building to create a Permaculture oasis.
The property features a seven year old food forest planted on swales, dripping with delicious sub tropical fruits including bananas, guava, feijoa, fig, mango, citrus and stawberries. A chook tractoring system, no dig gardens and a chop and drop mulching system have improved the soil on this rocky ridge where there is now a productive ecosystem. Happy chickens freerange in a fox proof chook house reusing an old caravan. Starting with zone 0 the solar passive home has been developed over the last 10 years with design features of rammed earth, light earth and mud brick, including an on site grey water treatment system, solar panels and even home grown bench tops!
There will be 1 session on the day and bookings are essential as places are limited.
