Event description

Description

Both the May International Permaculture Day and June World Environment Day tours sold out so quickly that Morag Gamble and Evan Raymond have decided to open their garden again on July 1.

Morag and Evan invite you on an in-depth guided tour of their award-winning permaculture oasis - an abundant polycultural garden surrounding their owner-built home. They will walk you up from the market at 10am giving you a brief introductory tour of the ecovillage along the way (a 10 minute walk). Please book early.

At Morag and Evan's place you will see the permaculture ethics, principles, zones and core strategies in action. These include:

  • zone one kitchen garden
  • perennial and self-seeding vegetable garden
  • herb garden - medicinal, culinary, teas
  • polycultural food forest
  • integrated chicken system
  • compost systems
  • worm farms and worm towers
  • bokashi system
  • simple modular owner-built ecohome (mortgage free)
  • hand-built grey water system
  • compost toilet system
  • solar energy system
  • windbreak
  • bushtucker
  • and more

This is a chance to see a well-designed domestic-scale permaculture system in action and to ask lots of questions. Morag and Evan have designed and built this house and garden themselves and know all the details. They created this without going into debt and are happy to share with you how they achieved this.

This home and garden also forms the classroom for Morag and Evan's home-educated children - an open air space to learn, connect, explore and ask deep questions. The kids will probably join in explaining how things work too.

It's a beautiful garden with so many interesting plants to taste and smell. Morag will pass around samples for people to smell and taste as we wander through her garden, sharing stories about their background, and how to grow, harvest and use them. Evan will share the technical details of how the house, energy and water systems work.

We'll take a break to enjoy a fresh cup of garden tea before walking back down to the market in time for lunch. For your tea, you can select from a range of herbs and bushtucker plants grown right here in the gardens.

Limited number of places for this fascinating tour.
