Introduction to Permaculture at Perth City Farm
Introduction to Permaculture at Perth City FarmPerth City Farm1 City Farm PlaceEast Perth,
Join local permaculture expert Rod Hughes to learn about permaculture from the soil up in this introductory class exclusive to Perth City Farm.
Permaculture is an approach to designing landscapes which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fibre and energy for local needs
This will be the perfect grounding for our two-day Introduction to Permaculture course in August. All this is set in the grounds of Perth City Farm, non-profit community environmental centre that provides space and opportunities to cultivate connection, and educates and enables all of us to live sustainably with nature.
Rod has worked nearly three decades in environmental management. In recent years he has turned his attention to permaculture learning and how this system of thinking can create new and critical connections between people, the environment and the food we eat. Rod has completed a Permaculture Design Certificate, Advanced Permaculture Design Certificate and Diploma of Permaculture and uses these skills as the Farm Manager at Perth City Farm. Rod’s motto is “be nice and grow things” and believes that being kind to each other, looking after mother earth and ensuring fair share is critical to our survival.

Permaculture Design Course 20 July for 10 weeksBeaconsfield
Part- time Permaculture Design Course (PDC) starting Wed 20 July 2022. - every Wednesday until 21 September 2022 9am to 5pm
Permaculture incorporates plants, animals, landscape, buildings, soil, local climate, and building community, and creates a design for these to work together creating a system that is self-sustaining or with minimal input.
There are many subjects covered in this course (too many to list). You will learn how to read your landscape, build soil, and put the right plant in the correct spot. We teach you how to use water effectively and conserve your resources by cycling them in a closed-loop system.
We will teach you about the many aspects of permaculture during this course and walk you through the design process. You will walk away from this 10-day course with a better understanding of your property and how to put it to the best productive use.
You can read the reviews from our past students on our Facebook page.
This course will be every Wednesday for 10 weeks, located in Beaconsfield.
