Join Stewart, Bee and Lee (age 11) at Merri Bee Organic Farm in Nannup, Western Australia, for 2 days of “hands on” learning.
Equip yourself with vital skills necessary for sustainable living and peak oil. During our weekend seminars you will gather knowledge from a couple who have provided most of their own meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, herbs, condiments, bread and dairy produce for over 25 years and are keen to share their experience in soil creation, seed saving, moon planting, rainwater harvesting, animal husbandry and energy efficient building with you!
Withdraw your support from multinational agribusiness / pharmaceutical corporations by simply refusing to eat their GMOs, pesticides, food additives, nanno particles, hormones, irradiation, antibiotics , heavy metals ect. Industrial food corporations are serving these up to us every day and food labels aren’t telling us. Get back to eating compost grown plants which resist pest and disease and in turn give animals and us a happy healthy life. Shrink your carbon footprint!
Cover Permaculture design which shows us how to arrange elements so that our house and garden conserves or generates energy and feeds us. Emphasis will be on “creating warm micro climates”and “weeds make delicious eggs”.
Get our hands into the earth! Make compost, compost teas, learn worm farming and see for yourself the magical results of worm castings and organic matter. Also taste the difference, and learn what compost does for our health.
Milk a cow; learn the basics of keeping your house cow healthy plus an introduction to making your own dairy products.
Learn the huge benefits of poultry keeping. Who needs “Weed and Feed” when you have a chicken tractor?
Bake stunning sourdough bread. Using various organic grains we will grind flour and then to make sourdough bread. Using dried fruits and nuts from the farm we’ll create our famous fruit and nut loaf. Take some home to delight your friends and family.
Tour the farm , inspecting the passive solar human and animal housing, greywater re-use system, intensive gardens, nursery, general plant propagation areas, poultry sheds and runs, compost production, worm farm, wicking bed, mature rare fruit and nut trees, and lots more.
