About Pete Blake

Like a lot of people my age in Western Australia, I grew up on a 1/4 acre suburban block. My parent's, and my grandparents, had fruit trees and large edible gardens where they grew food to eat and preserve, where we had chooks to take care of waste and offer eggs, and were compost piles were the norm.

My interest in permaculture grew out of a greater vision of living a holistic lifestyle... where health is also invested in the food we consume (let food be thy medicine)... where spending time in the growing of things and putting my hands in the dirt is as much meditation as it is gardening... where what we reap is what we sow, literally and figuratively, for now and the future...

A single Dad with a young daughter, currently I live on 5 acres in Banjup, a southern suburb only 20 or so minutes from Fremantle or the Perth CBD. A property owned by friends and home to 3 households. Among the natives, ornamentals and our tall trees there are fruit trees and edible gardens. It's a very creative, inspiring, peaceful and spiritual place to be...
