PERMABEE GARDENING PROGRAM
Before the afternoon workshops, you are welcome to come gardening with us Friday mornings from 9:00am to 12:30pm and help us plant, weed, and compost. We share a cosy morning tea together and socialise and at the end of each day, you'll share in the bounty of any harvest!
You will work as a team and gain expert guidance from landscape architect Steve Batley, and sustainability educator Julian Lee. Over the course of a year, there is the opportunity to learn specialist skills like pruning, grafting and seed saving.
PermaBees work in the purpose built permaculture garden at Randwick Sustainability Hub.

Small spaces can yield big results when productive gardens are designed according to permaculture principles. With many of us with limited space, this practical course led by permaculture expert and landscape architect Steve Batley, will help you grow more than you thought possible.
