The Food Forest- permaculture walk & talk- Afternoon Tour
The Food Forest Permaculture Walk & Talk: Afternoon Tour
Please arrive at 1.45pm for registration, as this is a sequential, guided program that starts at 2pm.
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 the numerous vegetable gardens (including small scale wicking beds) and poultry.
We'll visit our revegetation & aquifer recharge work along the Gawler River and look at the passive solar, energy efficient buildings- some of which include strawbale, 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 & grapes, and explain the benefits of the integration of chickens, geese & sheep in the orchards.
The event will be run according to SA Gov COVID guidelines.
Please note that while we welcome children to come along, this tour is aimed at adults.
Cost: $22 (incl GST) + BF. Children under 10 free. No pets.
Sales of trees (figs, pomegranates & vines), wine & pistachio nuts will be available at the conclusion of the tour.
