Event Description

Paul and Judith Collins who have more than forty years experience of sustainable living and in permaculture design, will  conduct a two hour walk and talk guided tour of their property The Keep.

The swaled food forest is designed in micro climate zones so as to allow for the growth of rain forest, tropical, subtropical, temperate, heritage and hot climate edible plants from around the world. The Berry house showcases both vines, bush and ground cover berries.

A  twelve month harvest Vegie Patch with wicker beds, aquaponics and culinary herbs supplies the Kitchen daily. A medicinal herb garden provides treatments for health issues. A poly tunnel grows pineapples, ginger and frost tender vegetables and herbs.  You can learn about their eighteen day composting system, companion planting techniques, friendly weeds and natural pest management.  There are farm animals, such as pigs, chooks, ducks and fish.

Judith is the author of Companion Gardening in Australia. A book which has been in popular circulation for over 25 years.

Fences, gates, garden beds, chook sheds, pig pens, and buildings are all constructed from recycled materials.




About the Organisers

We are sustainable lifestyle educators. A forty year life experience enriched by what we have achieved, the places we have been and the people we have met.

In that time we have occupied and revitalised five properties (urban and rural). Turning each ugly duckling into an environmentally comfortable home in harmony with nature. We use a number of design systems including permaculture, biodynamics, solar passive and self sufficiency to enhance our lifestyle.
