Permaculture Day

Join us at an exlusive event exploring the inspirational world of Permaculture with Tania Leilani.

Saturday 17th May, 2014; 10.30am – 4.00pm
Mullumbimby, NSW

Tania Leilani is well-known in the world of permaculture – not only for creating her own edible sanctuary in the Northern NSW Hinterland - she also spends time every year developing David Wolfe’s spectacular permaculture gardens at his property Noniland in Hawaii. During this event, Tania will be sharing the concepts of living in harmony with the planet and healing the environment through permaculture gardening and the local organic food culture. Lunch will be organic and fresh from the garden – you will be able to taste the difference! This is a very exclusive event with limited places.

Veggie garden

Tania Leilani  is a local Northern NSW permaculture guru and will be hosting the event in conjunction with naturopath Leisa Wheeler. Tania has taken what was once a barren, former cattle property, and turned it into the most incredible rainforest of edible plants – all done in harmony with the flow of the land, and looking wild and natural. You wouldn’t know that the property has been created with the most beautiful deliberate intent, until you are shown how it came to be.  Tania will be sharing the principles of permaculture in-depth with our group, talking about how she created not only her property, but how she also created and planted David Wolfe’s magical, edible paradise as well.

During this event you will learn:

  • How to assess your land and discover its secrets
  • How to plant in harmony with the flow of the land
  • Soil development
  • The low maintenance ‘chop and drop’ system
  • Companion planting
  • Arm’s length harvesting
  • Planting for nitrogen fixing
  • Dealing with pests
  • The benefits of spring water – how to find springs and identify them
  • The intelligence of plants
  • What we gain from living in a thriving ecosystem and eating from the garden
  • And much, much more!

An organic lunch created from the garden is included in the event price.
