Want to see how to start up your own Permaculture farm, learn about water in the landscape and Keyline Design? We have recently purchased a 15 acre P/c farm 20min east of Gympie at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast with the intention of becoming a self-sustaining beyond organic farm, Permaculture demonstration site, and educational centre. The existing Macadamia orchard is in the process of being revitalised and converted to organic production. We currently have modest garden beds around the house for our annual needs. During 2018 we will be completing the fencing of the property to establish a holistic grazing system with cattle & chickens moving daily through the property to manage the orchard and improve pastures. Current jobs include orchard work, seed raising, planting out, harvesting, mulching and fencing. We also have many building projects on the go where I'm happy to share skills (cob/strawbale/timber/wood fired ovens). I am a teacher so I always try and take the time to explain the theory behind what we are doing and how it relates to Permaculture principles. Dam for swimming. Accom in self contained caravan. Some shared meals, mostly food provided for you to prepare your own meals. Mixed diet, veg/vegan catered for. Close to Rainbow Beach & Fraser Island. Can p/u from Gympie.
