Sunday 24th May 2020, 2-4.30pm, at Murrnong
A Murrnong tour is a window into what permaculture design applied to a property, and to life, can look like after 23 years.
Update, 11th May. Lockdown restrictions have eased, and we can confirm that this tour on 24th May will go ahead with a maximum of 10 participants. The tours on the 16th and 17th sold out.
Murrnong has been evolving since 1996 from what was a grass field. These days Murrnong is a self-reliant home and farm, with food gardens, tree crop agriculture, and shelter forestry of trees and shrubs.
What a tour can include
Typically a tour will progress from the house, to the gardens, to the garden farming, tree crops, and forestry. See how considered permaculture design and ongoing management can lead to a regenerated and attractive landscape that sustains family, friends, visitors, and customers. Get a sense of what productive downshifter life can be like.
Meet the chickens, the milking goats, and Murrnong designer and developer, David Arnold.
Farm produce will be available for sale at the end of the tour.
