Sunday 26th Nov Food Forest workshop


Create a permaculture food forest in your own backyard.



Want to take your fruit and veg growing to the next level and create a permaculture food forest in your own backyard.
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.
It looks beautiful! And has huge benefits, producing food with minimal effort.

Bloomfield’s Homestead is a Land for Wildlife property in Jimboomba. The area, known to be in a “rain shadow”, receives a lot less average annual rainfall than the greater Brisbane region.
There is an abundance of native trees and shrubs now compared to when we moved in, in March 2016. There are different perennial growing systems, water harvesting earthworks, zero waste nursery/worm farm, a grey water garden, syntropics system, and wicking beds have been implemented. We also raise and harvest on-site our own ducks, geese, turkeys, chickens, sheep and pigs, and utilise hot and cold smokers. On the property are European honeybee hives as well.
