Description

Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.

It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people - providing their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.

This course will be delivered over a series of six (6) clusters with an online blackboard component and hands on learning at our Albany Campus, RCNC Community Garden and the Good Life Community Garden. The Good Life Garden is on a 5ha site at 78 Lower Kink Road, Albany and is an emerging garden being developed using permaculture principles. RCNC Community Garden is located on Humphries street, Lockyer and open to the public 24/7. It hosts regular gardening days, a produce swap and share and children's garden grubs program.

Join us for any of these clusters
