Event description
Immerse in Theory and Practice of Regenerative Food Production Incorporating Permaculture, Agroforestry Fungi, Animal and Veg Production

About this event

This hands-on learning experience in our ‘living classroom’ at The Farm is designed to give participants the experience of learning alongside professional regenerative producers in their working systems. Our systems work with natural succession to sequester carbon, build soil, create closed-loop nutrient cycling and yield an abundance of food, fuel, and fibre.

This course is ideally suited to:

• New landholders in the Byron Shire seeking a greater understanding of soils, climate, crop suitability and seasonal planting in our region.

• Land managers

• Aspiring market gardeners and farmers

• Landscapers with an interest in edible foodscapes

• Students of permaculture/syntropic farming/agroecology that are seeking detailed guidance with techniques and plant patterning on subtropical systems.

About the facilitators:

• Bunya Halasz is inspired by cultures that evolve creative practices of sustaining their material needs in a manner of deep reverence for their natural environment and all of its life forms. Through the lenses of Permaculture, Regenerative Agroecology and Successional Agroforestry, Bunya works as a designer, educator and gardening mentor. His work supports individuals and communities to grow food, fuel and fibre within ecologically regenerative systems as well as facilitating pathways of knowledge and skill sharing through courses and traineeships.

• Evan Anderson is on a lifelong journey of discovering what ecologically regenerative agriculture can look like at its greatest capacity and how it can regenerate both landscape and economy. Committed to the practical learning, he has been earning his living operating market gardens of his own for the better part of a decade. His focal work revolves around refining complex intercropping systems to pair production efficiencies with of ecological function.

• Dr. Kevin Glencross is a research fellow who has been working in Asia/Pacific and subtropical and tropical Australia on applied research in agroforestry- integrating trees in agricultural systems. He has a particular focus on traditional agroecological systems and publications that address biodiversity conservation, soils and catchment protection, climate change resilience, food security, carbon sequestration, agroecology and ecotourism.

The teaching will also be supported by guest tutors with specialist knowledge on fungi production, apiary, animal management and broadscale forest management.

Topics Covered: Enrolling in this course entails a strong commitment to full attendance of 12 days, 8am to 5pm. This training offers guidance - and most importantly, practical skills in:

• Ecological fundamentals (with special emphasis on our local region)

• Incorporating trees and perennial plants into whole farm design

• Wholistic site/site design

• Seasonal vegetable production

• Regenerative soil management

• Integration of animals with intensive horticultural production

• Cabinet timber production

• Integrating edible/medicinal fungi into agroforestry systems

• Apiary

• Plant propagation and seed saving

• Pruning and microclimate creation

• The local regenerative economy

This course is delivered over a long time period to give participants the opportunity to see their work evolve and to complete crop cycles from planting to harvest. The dates for this course are:

Tuesdays 8:00am to 5:00pm Aug 31, Sept 7, 14, and 21, Oct 5, 12, 19 and 26, Nov 9, 16, 23 and 30

Growing Roots Permaculture and Hungry Earth Ecology are collaboratively developing and managing a cutting edge Agroecological Production System and Living Classroom at our 2 acre plot at 'The Farm' at Byron Bay. We provide sustenance to our community through produce of exceptional quality via weekly vegie boxes and supplies to local cafes in our region. We offer ongoing work and training opportunities to countless farmers and aspiring land managers in our region and around the globe. Our mission is to expand our regenerative food systems and support other systems that are ever moving towards greater resilience, productivity and ecological function through management of onsite ecological processes. Our model is built upon our working knowledge of natural succession and forest decelopment in our local ecosystem.
