A new format for permaculture education

Posted by

kids in veggie patch-10Great news happening from the Central Coast!

Permaculture education is now compatible with school engagements!

We’ve retrofitted the PDC programme so that parents and carers can snugly fit a PDC within their school duties of dropping off and picking up children.

“We’re very excited about this new format as it enables mums, dads, grand-parents as well as shift-workers to access permaculture education in a safe, engaging, affordable and stress-less way.”

Rowe Paula Alexia






Rosemary Morrow will teach alongside permaculture educators (and mums!) Paula Paananen from Options Disability Support and Alexia Martinez from Terra Permaculture.

  • It will run every Friday from 2 May to 14 November (no class during school holidays) from 10am to 2pm.
  • A Saturday option (full day) is also available from 3 May to 16 August and will run from 9am to 5pm.

These two courses will take place at the Common Ground Gardens which have been established by and for young adults with a disability living on the Central Coast. The gardens provide an ideal setting for building community and practical learning.

Hope you can join us in our efforts to promote and expand permaculture knowledge to families and carers of children.
