Permaculture Walk & Talk

The tour will start with a brief introduction to Permaculture, the design system for sustainable living. We will then take you on a walk inspecting revegetation work along the Gawler River, vegetable gardens and poultry.

We will have a look at the passive solar, energy efficient buildings, including strawbale buildings, solar hot water and photovoltaic systems, rainwater catchment, composting toilet and reedbed systems. We then move on to the sanctuary where native vegetation adds to the diversity amongst the production orchards.

We will explain the growing of many of our fruit and nut species such as figs, apples, pears, carobs, pistachios, and grapes.

Tastings and sales of trees and organic produce will also be available.
