Food Gardening Step-by-Step

Project: Ashwood College Permaculture Food Garden

Posted by Mariette Tuohey about 7 years ago

8 x 2 hour sessions on a weekly basis will provide you with the basic skills to get your garden growing, whether that is your backyard, your balcony or your community garden plot.

The steps in this course are compost (we build a real hot compost heap!), top soil regeneration (we actively build soil and learn how the process works), weed management (what can we eat?), seeds and seedlings (heirloom seeds, transplanting skills), integrated pest management, plant propagation (we use cuttings and divisions appropriate to the season), water management and a final session called "Conducting the jungle".

No previous experience required, but please bring experience with you. We all learn more each time I run this course.

8 x 2 hour sessions run once a week, the next iteration starts on Thursday 23 May at 10am. Course cost is $160 per person, or $100 concession. Profit from the course is shared with the Ashwood College Permaculture Food Garden, which means we don't rely on grants any longer...

Come and join the fun, bookings essential on 0414 58 88 21.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
