It’s only 30 minutes from the Darwin CBD The property has very well established landscaped grounds, large vegetable growing areas and a big variety of fruit trees.

It’s ideal that you have some experience of organic food growing, but we have catered for beginners. If you have already studied permaculture, you will find the workshop extends your existing knowledge, adding a new and interesting perspective to maximising the effectiveness of your food growing activities.
The workshop content is contexualised to the food growing spaces at the venue and the presenter also works closely with each participant to ensure there is an action plan to bring all content into the context of their own food growing spaces. Workshop participant numbers are a maxium of 15 people.
