Event Description

If you are interested in learning about the Ooooby site, come along at 7:30pm and we will have it on the big screen and will explain some features.

The Film: Join Geoff Lawton on a Permaculture adventure as he demonstrates how to grow a food forest from start to finish. Over 90 minutes of quality information to get you on the right track in creating your own garden of Eden.

It starts with a 20 minute Permaculture Classroom as Geoff explains the patterns of a Food Forest and the essential principles of “time stacking” your garden with the right mix of support species that feed and protect your fledgling fruit trees into maturity. Then Geoff goes into the field as he puts the theory into action, plants the seeds and watches the system grow.

It ends up at Tagari Farm – established by Permaculture founding father, Bill Mollision – which was abandoned years ago, but planted according to Permaculture design principles. Would this Food Forest survive on its own? You’ll be surprised.
