About Dominique Chanovre

I studied Business at University after coming straight out of school. I know its evil, but in my defence I was young and silly. As soon as I finished my degree I did my PDC and got a job as a handyman to learn practical skills that I feel will come in handy (excuse the pun :) ).

I heard about Permaculture a couple of times during conversations with friends and family and didn't think anything of it. Until one day I came across it on the internet and did some reading for myself and found myself really interested in what it stood for and what it could do and mainly how necessary and relevant it is for todays world. Since then I really do believe how all aspects of permaculture from building strong communities to growing and sharing food are all so very very important for resilient, safe societies and a healthy sustainable environment.

I work for a not-for-profit organisation in Perth called Perth City Farm. It has some permaculture principals but is mainly focused on being a sustainable farm in the city. It has all the basic elements of a farm i.e. animals, food gardens and a workshop, and other important parts as well like a nursery, weekend farmers market and cafe. I am interested in Guerrilla Gardening and growing food forests (aka forest gardens) if there is anyone in Perth interested in this to, let me know and we can share knowledge. I am a farm supervisor at Perth City Farm and completing my Cert 3 in Permaculture with Dr Ross Mars.
