About Bee Winfield

I have been developing a permaculture on our 25 acres for 28 years. Very grateful to Bill Mollison for his amazing brain and hard work teaching permaculture. I attended a lecture series by him 30 years ago. My wonderful partner Stewart has done a PDC with Geoff Lawton and has a wealth of knowledge on earth works having been a dam building /road work /house pad contractor for many years. We have been selling certified organic food in Perth for 9 years now, and thanks to the mature food trees planted years ago we have rare and wonderful food to sell all year round. Have installed swales and wicking beds, a wicked series of vege gardens integrated with fowl pens, created huglekulture and contour gardens and built a series of mudbrick solar passive designed homes for us and animals ( separate!) . Planting hundreds of trees every winter, really necessary to bring back the rain, which has fizzled out big time. Think W.A needs aide workers to plant trees... Woofers welcome and well fed! We run "Gourmet Gardening " weekends, teaching basic cooking and the joys of homegrown real food, attracting many people new to permaculture . I like preaching to the unconverted. We are campaigning for GM free food and the protection of aquifers from mining, native forests (sadly a nearly full-time job). We are selling seeds for permaculture and breeding Berkshire pigs, sheep, Jersey cows chooks and ducks suitable for permaculture in the South West of WA

Save the Swales

We have found swales to be essential. A row of fruit trees planted nearby a row of fruit trees planted on a swale needed to be kept alive with 3 drip irrigations a week ....in contrast the swale trees were fine with 3 such irrigations for the summer.
