Please email us if you would like us to let you know when we lock in a date.


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 & aquifer recharge work along the Gawler River, the numerous vegetable gardens (incl small scale wicking beds) and poultry.

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

We will show you and discuss the growing of many of our fruit and nut species such as figs, pomegranates, pears, carobs, pistachios and grapes, and explain the benefits of the integration of chickens, geese and sheep in the orchards.
