Permaculture in Action

Use the permaculture system for better living

Do you yearn for a simpler, more abundant life? A life where you provide more of your own food and produce less waste? Permaculture provides practical, "do-able" solutions for living lighter on the earth, using a design process that works with nature. Whether you're growing food on a balcony or a farm, permaculture will help you create the lifestyle you long for.

Permaculture speaks to the very heart of who we want to be, and how we want to live. We all yearn for a simpler life with more connection to nature, and more time doing the things we love, but often feel trapped in a cycle of constant stress, too much work and too many demands on our time. Permaculture provides a clear set of simple principles to help you create real-life, practical designs that will improve your life, based on the ethics of caring for the earth, caring for people and a fair share for everyone.

Our Grow Great Fruit system draws heavily on the 12 permaculture principles, which include "observe and interact", "catch and store energy", "obtain a yield", and our favourite—"use small and slow solutions"!

This module starts with a comprehensive Permaculture Masterclass that will take you step-by-step through the principles including real-life examples. Then you'll learn a host of practical permaculture skills including how to design your garden, monitoring skills, build your own dehydrator and create micro-climates. By the time you've finished this module you'll achieve a solid overview of how to use permaculture across every fruit growing topic to help you create a thriving permaculture garden. (NOTE: Most of the topics in this module are included in other modules.)
