Event description
A fascinating workshop to explore how you can start, develop and enjoy a permaculture food forest.

About this event

Want to take your fruit and veg growing to the next level and create a permaculture food forest in your own yard or community garden?

Learn how to start your own forest garden to grow fruit trees in a low input system that produces its own fertility, biomass and perennial vegetables.

A food forest mimics the diversity of a natural forest where a variety of plants grow together as an ecosystem. By modelling this concept in the garden, plants grouped together complement each other, take advantage of niches and microclimates, increase biodiversity and ensure healthy soil and plants.

And it looks beautiful! And big benefit is producing food with minimal effort.

Morning tea provided. Please bring your reusable water bottle (and a hat for when you're in our outdoor classroom).

This event is made possible thanks to the Brisbane City Council Cultivating Community Gardens Grant.

This event will be run in accordance with our COVID-safe plan.

About the workshop facilitator: Doreen Jachmann

Doreen Jachmann runs a self-sufficient homestead, Bloomfield's Farm in Jimboomba. Together with her partner she documents the property transformation from a blank canvas to a sustainable food forest on their Facebook page.

They are food waste recyclers and, on average, save 250kg from going to landfill each week. They use different composting methods to convert the food waste to beautiful rich soil, without the aid of machinery.

Doreen has a Bachelor of Horticulture and has worked in different climate zones around the world. She also has a Certificate 4 in Environmental Monitoring specialising in soil and water testing and a Certificate 4 in Training and Assessment.

She planted the seed to inspire other people to be more self-reliant and started Permaculture Connect, a group that regularly gets together to learn from each other and strengthen their community resilience.

Doreen's enthusiasm is contagious and makes learning fun and easy.

Organiser Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee

Organiser of Creating a permaculture food forest

Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee Inc. (B4C) was established as an incorporated catchment and landcare group in 1997. The success of our organisation has been achieved to a major degree by the efforts and outcomes of our services provided by the Ecosystem Services Unit.

As a Social Enterprise, we reinvest the majority of our profits in supporting the environment and the community.

Our activities with the community are undertaken through education and school projects, supporting bushcare groups when requested and by providing the community opportunities to be involved in tree planting, weeding and working on waterways and bushlands.

Our office is located at our Sustainability Centre in Carindale.
