Food Forests & Crop Gardens

In just over a months time the Permaculture Research Institute, Australia will be hosting a Food Forest & Crop Garden course at our home, Zaytuna Farm in Northern NSW Australia. In this course, Geoff and Nadia will explain the patterns of these systems and the essential principles of “time stacking” your garden with the right mix of support species that feed and protect your fledgling trees into maturity.

You will be putting this new found theory into action, planting the seeds and seeing how the system grows with example gardens at different stages of development.

Zaytuna Farm is pure gold for a high rich learning environment.

The May 2nd early bird cut-off date is fast approaching and we still have a couple of seats available here, so there’s still a chance to get onto this very popular course if you move quick.
