Poowong’s first Permablitz! Jackie and Jim invite you to be part of their tree change story.

"Our straw bale house is almost finished. Now it’s time for our sustainable garden. It’s a blank canvas with 2 acres of pasture to turn into productive garden.

We’ll be starting with trees – Hazelnuts, carob, olives, chestnuts, citrus. Help and learn about native planting to attract birds and good bugs; and - nut trees - great staple and good windbreak. Come for the Hazelnut grove workshop held by Karen Sutherland of Edible Eden Designs.

Then native creek bed planting – carex, tea tree, lomandra and other water plants to encourage insects and birds as well as help our giant earthworm colonies. Karen will also do a water plants workshop here too.

If we get time we’ll add to the start of our fruit den with some apple trees and under story berry boxes. Future projects include a hen haven and a vegie stair case.

Can’t wait to share this learning experience with you. Such a great opportunity to learn about permaculture and garden design. Tours of our straw bale pole house available too."
