Permaculture Sydney Institute is calling all PDC graduates to a “Celebration Party and Get Together” to celebrate 40 years of Permaculture. And what better way is there to celebrate an anniversary birthday than to have a party! The get together weekend will be held at Bandusia Country Retreat in March where graduates will be able to relax, refresh, regroup, recalibrate, refocus and revitalize all around the theme of Permaculture.
This course shows you how to design, construct and manage a permaculture home garden that is productive, ‘eco-friendly’, organic, healthy and low maintenance. Learn about the basic concepts of permaculture as well as its design principles, systems, techniques and strategies and everything you need to know to create and enjoy your own permaculture home garden.
Over this long weekend you will be building an outdoor garden circular bench seat and bottle wall. You will be constructing the bench seat from earthbags and render then constructing the back wall of the bench seat with bottles and render. It’s a creative project that involves a range of different natural building skills and learning.
This workshop will help you understand, design and implement earthworks on your property (large or small) to set up your system well from its foundations, getting the structure and framework right. It will prepare you for future scenarios such as drought; floods; food shortages; and climate change.
