Garden volunteers and workshops
Kitchen garden, forest garden, wild food and native plant garden and vertical garden or seed saving - what appeals? These gardens are all available to work in on our regular Friday and 1st Sunday of the month Permabee gardening sessions. They're a chance to learn, do and get a little exercise.
You'll be part of a friendly group who work under expert guidance to maintain this award winning demonstration site. We enjoy a delicious morning tea together and chat over lunch. In the afternoon we hold workshops on a variety of topics
We meet in the Permaculture Interpretive Garden every Friday and 1st Sunday of the month from 9:00am
Over the course of a year, volunteer gardeners have the opportunity to work in each of the gardens and are able to attend the afternoon workshops for free.
