We have had a number of people express interest in a permablitz this year.  Permablitzes offer so many rewards – it’s a fabulous day of conversation, learning, connection, and of course progressing your landscape design.  From acreage to a small back yard, laying irrigation pipes, to weeding and everything in between, it’s a great skill share opportunity in a friendly environment.  Children are always welcome as they are the permies of the future!  If a blitz appeals to you, simply email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Fermentation Basics

sauerkraut200Fermentation Basics

For thousands of years humans have enjoyed the distinctive flavours and nutrition of fermented foods. Add nutritional value to every-day foods by learning to make Kombucha, a tea-based fermented drink, Kefir, a probiotic-rich, yoghurt alternative and tasty sauerkraut.  All these can easily be made with simple ingredients and equipment that everyone has in their kitchen. We may even touch on mead, a popular, honey-based, alcoholic drink."

Workshop Costs

Full cost is specific to a workshop dependent on length, content and materials required.
As a rough guide, a 3hr workshop using no materials is usually $30.
