About Mariette Tuohey

Mariette Tuohey teaches food gardening step-by-step in the Ashwood College Permaculture Food Garden. 8 x 2 hour sessions which each focus on a particular topic: Compost, Topsoil Regeneration, Weeds, Seeds, Pests, Propagation, Water and a final session called Conducting the Jungle - dealing with the fact that a robust permaculture garden can look like chaos to a conventional gardener.

Mariette completed her PDC in Bendigo's Gravel Hill gardens in August 2004 - the main teachers were David Holmgren and Darren Doherty, Beck Lowe and Mary-Anne Baker.

Mariette is the co-ordinator of the Ashwood College Permaculture Food Garden, an urban food garden run by volunteers which is located on school grounds. Some basic numbers: 2,370 square metres of land, 55 fruit trees, 2 x 75,000 litre tanks which capture water off a large school building, a 6x3m shade house and a pergola with a woodfired pizza oven. This project was started in 2007, and my own garden awaits my attention still. Education has become the focus for this garden.
