Dusk is a magical time in the garden. Starting in spring, and as daylight savings gives us longer evenings, come and join Kim in her lush Heathmont permaculture paradise for one or more of these small-group workshops and light supper.
It started with growing a few pea seeds in a pot. The magic of germination and harvesting that small crop has grown into a passion (some would say obsession) for growing food and learning how to live more sustainably. The pot of peas has developed into a productive permaculture garden on half an acre – with 33 fruit trees, a troupe of chooks, lots of veggies, bees, and a year-round source of delicious, nutritious food.
She has a social work degree (counselling techniques now applied to her wayward poultry and dogs) and has completed a PDC with Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton. She’s spent a year managing a permaculture project in Uganda. Her life is enriched by messing around in the garden, challenging herself to live more simply and sharing this good life with others. Kim’s one of our favourite people in the world, with one of the best gardens.
It’s a true treat to visit her in her element, learn from her, and to share her food!
