Permaculture is a way of living that mimics the patterns found in nature. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to plan a veggie garden based on permaculture principles.

Topics covered include: 

  • zoning for convenience and access
  • designing for sun and wind
  • soil health
  • water systems
  • bed construction types
  • appropriate plant choices, and
  • an introduction to permaculture techniques including swales, sheet mulching, food forests, and guild planting.

The workshop will include a walk and talk around Edendale to see examples of permaculture techniques in action, plus participants will make a mud map of their own growing space to help plan their future permaculture plot.

Proudly brought to you as part of Nillumbik Shire Council’s annual Spring Outdoors program in conjunction with Manningham and Banyule councils.
