A Guided permaculture tour Sun June 5th 2016
from 10 am to 1.30 pm.
Join Stew and Bee on Merri Bee Organic Farm,Sunday morning this long weekend for an introduction to Permaculture . We will take a wander through food forests, some 25 years old, visiting many friendly farm animals along the way.
On this extensive guided tour you will see more than 90 different mature species of plants that provide fodder, fruit, timber, nuts craft materials or bee forage. Admire the happily grazing free range pigs, sheep, cows and ducks and marvel at the developing bamboo collection. See how nutrients are recycled and water flows through this thriving eco system.
Being spring on the farm we may see a chick hatching or a calf being born if we are very lucky!
Stewart and Bee have provided most of their own meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, herbs, condiments, bread and dairy produce from this land for 30 years and are keen to share the really useful permaculture design principals which start with an ethic ….care of Earth and care of people. We have created a day especially for those who have decided to withdraw their support from multinational agribusiness / pharmaceutical corporations by simply refusing to buy their “food”.
If GMOs, pesticides, food additives, nanno particles, hormones, irradiation, and antibiotics, all packaged up in gaily coloured plastic and delivered via fossil fuel are not for you; if you believe there must be a way we can eat ,without adding huge toxic loads to our air, water and soil, then please join us. Meet others on the same path and pick up many helpful ideas
Taste the forgotten flavours of compost grown fruit, nutrient dense veges and animal products. Children do appreciate real food and we would love your family to join us for a day of memorable experiences which show where food comes from.
The cost is $75 .00 per adult and $15.00 per child, which includes lunch and teas .
See the passive solar human and animal housing, intensive gardens, nursery, poultry sheds and runs, compost and compost tea production, worm farm, wicking bed, swales, mature rare fruit and nut trees, raspberries, wood lots and lots more. Bring appropriate footwear and clothing for steep hiking in the fresh air of Nannup. This workshop will assist those looking for a property as we will focus on assessing a block’s potential for permaculture and the principals of design whilst simultaneously engaging your children. Please note, you are responsible for your children’s safety at all times on the farm but we will take all care as well. Please email email@example.com after booking your spot (instructions here) . We look forward to meeting you . Cheers, Bee
