Event description

Description

Back by popular demand we will be throwing open our gates and inviting you in to see a commercial scale permaculture garlic farm! Established in 2007, Katamatite Garlic is a rare chance to see the application of permaculture design philosophy at the crucial first steps of a farming business.

The day will begin with Lisa outlining the business and farm vision before Grahame talks you through our main commercial crop (garlic) and farm design then we'll head out for a walk and talk through the main veggie patch; exploring chicken domes, composting, soil health, wicking beds and mandala garden set-up. There will be plenty of time to discuss the key components of our permaculture design. There is also some time to explore the farm gate store and enjoy tasting of our favourite garlic jellies.

Tickets are just $10 each to help us cover insurance costs, children under 16 are free. Please book early as there is limited capacity and events typically book out. Groups booking of 10+ dicounts available call 0438983718.

Grahame’s Bio -In 2007 Grahame moved with his young family back to Northern Victoria where he grew up. Since then he and his wife Lisa have been working to transform a 1.2 hectare property on the edge of their small town. They make their living from this property, Katamatite Garlic, with our small commercial production, and with property tours. Although Grahame has been a student and practitioner of permaculture for many years, and the property is evidence of that, he completed his PDC in 2017 and found it to be a very rewarding and affirming experience. He is a ‘people person’ who loves plants and particularly loves soil. Grahame completed his Bachelor of Science in Horticulture at Melbourne University, Burnley in 1993.
