Your workshop facilitator will be Doreen Jachmann a Permaculture, Horticultural Consultant at Bloomfield’s Homestead and President at Permaculture Connect Brisbane Inc.
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 the humble beginnings of March 2016. 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 and pigs, and utilise hot and cold smokers. There are several European honeybee hives as well.
