Plants and Permaculture

Plants and Permaculture

Learn to live a permaculture lifestyle and how to take care of plants in the kitchen and garden.

Chickens and plants

This workshop is designed for plant lovers. For those interested in living a permaculture lifestyle in relation to plants and how to use them in the kitchen and garden. So, if you’d like to regain a connection with the vegetative world while learning real skills for Earth-based living, this workshop is for you. You’ll learn how to utilise plants for food, medicine, fodder and fibre, whilst providing habitat and systemic stability.

In this workshop you will learn strategies and techniques that will broaden your knowledge and increase your skill in gardening and homesteading.
