Meet Martina

Martina has been teaching Permaculture Design, Permaculture Living Skills and Sustainability for the last six years through her business Permaculture Educators Alliance. She is also the Education Lead of Perth City Farm. In her spare time, she's an avid home cook and preserver. She loves to experiment with new flavours and preserving methods.

Our weekly farmer's market will be in full swing during your workshop, so it's worth arriving a little early to check out the stalls and maybe buy some fresh produce.

Perth City Farm is a community urban farm that supports connected, sustainable communities. Established on a former industrial site in East Perth, this polluted site has been lovingly rehabilitated by volunteers to become a Western Australian icon for environmental sustainability and community engagement. We provide space and opportunities to build community connections, and educate and enable people to live sustainably.
