Open Day – this Sunday

It’s that time of year again… just when the sun disappears, the rain hits, the weeds pop up and the fruit trees start dropping their tired old leaves everywhere, we fling the gate open and welcome you into our little warts-and-all family garden in progress…


45 Addison Rd Warradale

Why? It’s International Permaculture Day and we want to share the joy of working with a design system (sometimes called Australia’s greatest intellectual export!) that makes human habitat so much more sustainable – and fun. We love living and growing our own grub in the suburbs and we’d like to help you do it too.

It’s a productive family garden featuring fruit trees, raised vegetable beds, in-ground beds, vertical gardens, beehives, worm farm, compost, verge gardening, native habitat, wood-fired oven, cubby house with a bit of passive solar design, and an energy-efficient real grown up house too 😉

The program for the afternoon goes like this…

– Arrive anytime from 1pm, sign in (free) and grab a self-guided tour plan

– Explore the gardens at your leisure

– Pick some herb cuttings to grow at home

– Catch Andrew or me for more info on anything of interest

– See Sally (Nanny Green Thumbs) for a fruit tree grafting demo at 2pm

– Join Ruth (Surya Tara Yoga) for a free short yoga class at 3pm – your body is your number one garden tool!

– Browse through the organic and heirloom seeds, garlic, plants and garden goodies for sale – and get planting as soon as you get home!

– See examples of local permaculture-based garden designs by Nadja’s Garden

– Chat with Veronique and Jan about our local food swap, the Sustainable Communities SA local group and the social side of sustainable living

– Have fun and meet other local gardeners 🙂


Children are welcome under adult supervision. Please be mindful of bees in the garden – they are busy making the honey for your afternoon tea!
