Sydney Edible Garden Trail

Sydney Edible Garden Trail

Spend a weekend visiting edible gardens and talking to like minded gardeners across Sydney! OR open your own garden as part of the trail!

The Sydney Edible Garden Trail is a self guided two day event showcasing the many ways that Sydney residents are creating food security in the urban environment, saving money and the environment, while enjoying the health benefits of home grown fruit and veg. Backyard growers, large and small, throughout Metropolitan Sydney will open their gardens to the public on the weekend of 26/27 March 2022!

We are a non-profit event run by volunteers, with profits going back to local schools and community gardens.

Permaculture Design Course (PDC) Modular Format

Permaculture Design Course (PDC) Modular Format

Follow your passion and immerse yourself in this Modular Permaculture Design Course held in the Beautiful Byron Shire. In this hands-on course you will discover how Permaculture principles can develop resilient systems, contributing to environmental, social and personal well-being. Through gaining a clear understanding of these principles, you will be able to apply them to your everyday life and surroundings – from a small home garden to commercial production.

You will learn how to design, build and maintain abundantly productive food gardens within sustainable human settlements and be shown how to work with an appreciation and understanding of nature’s patterns and cycles. There is an additional focus upon practical activities in the garden including no-dig gardening, seed saving, plant propagation, food forestry, Hugelkultur, tree maintenance, animal care, composting and more…

The course takes place over 14 days held as individual short modules on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year. The foundational 72 hour International Permaculture Design Course (PDC) curriculum is covered – plus loads of hands on experience and field trips. This modular course is designed to support flexible, part time learning with the opportunity to complete all the modules within a 4 – 12 month period, depending on your availability to attend each one*. Upon completion of all 14 modules you will graduate with a Permaculture Design Certificate. The PDC course is held twice a year. The modules can be enroled in seperately but to take advantage of price savings, enrol in the PDC rather than in each individual module.
