This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in holistic land management and eco design on one of New Zealand’s premier permaculture farms.
The weekend includes: farm tour; market gardening; fruit tree care; managing goats in a browse-based system; kune kune pigs in orchards; tractoring fowl in land management; climate-resilient farming; improving pasture health without heavy equipment or chemicals; stream corridor restoration; native plantings; water management; setting up a plant nursery; identifying niche markets; disease-resistant fruit trees; growing avocados in marginal conditions. Plus: solar cooking; rocket stoves; important considerations about grey water and compost toilets; Building-Code compliant sleep-outs and tiny homes.
