PERMACULTURE NORTHEN BEACHES – 3 OPEN GARDENS – TALKS – ACTIVTIES – PARTY
International Permaculture Day is celebrated around the world on the first Sunday in May. It is Australia’s best export!  Join us on Sydney’s Northern Beaches for three inspiring open garden tours as well as visiting our stalls and workshops and much more.

1 – BUNGAN EDDIBLE SANCUARY

9am-10am – BUNGAN EDDIBLE SANCUARY GUIDED GARDEN TOUR – 7 Beach Road, Newport
Please start this fantastic day at easily the biggest permi garden going around, This humungous garden is set on the beachtop headland and consists of a vast array of fruit trees, huge raised beds, chickens, worm farms, self watering systems, honey and native bees and a huge pool to pond conversion with over 200 trout!

10am-10.30am – AQUAPONICS TALK with Charlie Bacon ECOLICIOUS  – 7 Beach Road, Newport
Aquaponics refers to any system that combines conventional aquaculture with hydroponics in a symbiotic environment. Ever wanted to grow your own fish to eat, harvest your veges and have it almost completely sustainable, well now you can with this amazing system. Please join Charlie and the bungan crew around the pool for this interesting talk, we may even get time to throw a line in.

10.30 – 11.30am – PNB SEED SAVERS MEET, GREET AND TALK – 7 Beach Road, Newport
Join the crew to learn and talk in the ancient art of saving seeds , Bring your own, swap and buy seeds all grown locally.

2 – MONA MAGIC

12.00-12.45 – GARDEN TOUR with Matt Wilson – 22 Minmai Rd, Mona vale
Another fantastic garden with over 35 fruit and nut trees, a lot of them exotic. a unique sloping block with an aquaponcis system built into the landscape, chickens, ducks, ponds plus bee hives scattered throughout the garden. The bonsais are maintained by intergraded water systems and it also keeps the veges from drying out. Loads packed in, come check it out

12.45- 1.30 – HONEY BEE TALK with HONEY I’M HOME – 22 Minmai Rd, Mona vale
Join award winning honey experts Mark and Caroline on a talk about bees and honey! How they make it? Why? The importance of pollination and the state of our bees. Bring your questions and take home some local raw honey

3 – GRAND FINALE

2pm-3pm – GARDEN TOUR – 2 Samuel Street, Mona vale
Just up the road lies our final garden , another hugely productive level garden with numerous established fruit trees all bearing fruit. Dragon fruit, pomegranate and persimmon just to name a few.  a vast array of veges but a spectacular coffee hedge laided with beans is the true attraction.

3pm-4pm – COFFEE TALK – 2 Samuel Street, Mona vale
Why do we pay $4.50 for a coffee? Because there actually is a load of work involved before that sweet nectar hits our lips, come and learn how to harvest, dry, shell, roast, grind and FINALLY pour the perfect coffee. With a professional barista on call all day to serve it up, this hands on experience will be one to remember.

2pm – 6pm TIME TO PARTY! – 2 Samuel Street, Mona vale
So bring the kids, let them dance to the live music in the garden, enjoy a wine or a cuppa, talk to experienced gardeners from Permaculture northern beaches who will be available at the permaculture stall, along with other various stalls, fun kids activities, plant sales, raffles and many more.
