About the venue:
The property features a eight 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 house has been developed over the last 10 years with design features of rammed earth, light earth and mud brick, solar passive home including an on site grey water treatment system, solar panels and even home grown bench tops!
About the teacher:
Megan Cooke, director of Garden to Table Permaculture has a combined 24 years experience in horticulture, permaculture and outdoor education. Megan taught a ‘Gardening for Sustainability Program’ for the Great Lakes Council and also enjoyed teaching children about growing their own produce in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.

Megan is passionate about teaching people the joys of growing and cooking their own organic food and sharing the knowledge she has learnt from her sustainable living journey of building a rammed earth passive solar house surrounded by Permaculture gardens with her husband and two children in Pacific Palms.
*Part of the proceeds from our business is donated to our Permaculture Project in Africa. With our last donation of $250, Hardwell and his family in Malawi were able to buy some chickens and build and chicken house.
