Organiser

The Land at Green Point; Actively Zen Foundation

The Land at Green Point is a 4 acre bush block nestled between Central Coast Suburbia at its conceptual stage of permaculture design. This is the first formal course to be run on the property and is an exciting step towards the development of The Land at Green Point becoming a working Permaculture demonstration site and focus of community building for all things sustainable.

Each course is to be set up to also support a local and national issue or concern.
