Permaculture Interpretive Garden at the Randwick Community Centre 27 Munda Street Randwick


Event Description

The Permaculture Interpretive Garden… PLANTS… FOOD… LIFE…… & CHANGE OF SEASON.

It’s a great way to spend an Saturday afternoon.

That’s what we’re doing this Saturday when we join horticultural educator and permaculture gardener, Emma Daniell, for our Saturday afternoon PermaBee in the Permaculture Interpretive Garden.


Arrive 2:30pm for us to assess the garden and work out what activities we might do such as:

  • Seed propagation
    We’ll check the calendar for October and propagate this months seeds.
    We’ll also check what to plant in November for successional planting and possible seed ordering.
  • Seed saving
    We’ll look at collecting seed, storing and labelling seed. We’ll also choose what plants we want to go to seed and label so people don’t pick those plants.
  • Planting
    We’ll look at preparing our bean and corn beds and direct sow seeds.
  • Weeding and checking the compost and wormfarms and feeding the fish in our aquaponic system

It’s all about learning by doing, a relaxed and easy way to acquire gardening skills like propagating, transplanting, harvesting, composting and maintaining the garden, skills you take home to apply in your own garden

The Permaculture Interpretive Garden (PIG), home to our PermaBees, is a community park rather than a community garden. You just turn up when you can and join in the fun and learning. It’s and edible community park that is also a learning space for Randwick Council’s Organic Gardening, Balcony Gardening and Permaculture Orchard courses. And, with its public BBQ, it’s a popular venue for children’s birthday parties — though you have to get there early to find space.

See you then. Don’t forget your hat, sun cream and covered shoes.
