Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments. It is about designing households and communities that are productive, sustaining and largely self-reliant and have minimal impact on the environment.

International Permaculture Day –  A day in early May, when a range of permaculture events occur across the globe. Open homes, gardens and farms, films, educational workshops, permablitzes and a host of other activities provide an opportunity for the public to see positive permaculture projects in action, to talk personally to the people living it and experience the permaculture movement first hand.

A Permaculture Homestead Educational Tour 

 

jen bio 3It’s time again for International Permaculture Day!  This will be Spiral Ridge Permaculture’s 7th year hosting this event.  You can count on free talks and tours of our homestead systems.  As always we will have plants for sale after the tour.  We may have to cap the number of participants.  We have had over 100 folks attend!  Although this is a free event, please reserve your place!

Cliff Davis of Spiral Ridge A full list of courses are available on our Event Calendar.

Who are your hosts?  We, Cliff Davis and Jennifer Albanese, have been developing an off-grid  permaculture homestead for the last 9 years, on marginal land that was previously logged.  We teach and host permaculture related courses, offer consultancy and run a permaculture market farm, Pig & Leaf.   Come on out and find out what permaculture is all about.  If you have been considering taking one of our courses, now is the opportunity to meet us as well as many of our course graduates, who will also be attending.
