Come join us on Sunday 5th May, 2 – 4.30pm, for a tour of Murrnong, from the inside out.
This tour is a window into what permaculture design applied to a property, and to life, can look like after 22 years. 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.
The two and a half hour 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 an inspiringly 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, Alfred the very friendly rooster, the milking goats, and the core of the Murrnong family, David and Cecilia.
Tea, coffee and produce available at the beginning and end.
And if you are going to the Off Grid Living Festival, David will be speaking on the Short Talks stage at 10.30am about the Journey from Consumer to Home Producer.
