Cessnock City Council is encouraging small landowners seeking to maximize their land use through environmental sustainability and soil regeneration to take advantage of a free one-day course on permaculture design tips.

Maplewood Permaculture is hosting the course; which covers various aspects of permaculture principles, site analysis and practical application in creating a home vegetable garden and orchard.

The course aims to provide participants with the necessary skills and knowledge to create a sustainable and productive landscape, that benefits both the environment and themselves. Participants will learn how to design a site analysis, identify the principles of permaculture, and implement techniques to regenerate soil and the environment.

Maplewood Permaculture’s founder, Will, said the course will focus on understanding how to divide a property into different zones to maximize productivity and efficiency, and create a low-maintenance design that is in harmony with nature. Additionally, participants will learn how to create a home vegetable garden and orchard, allowing them to cultivate fresh produce for their family and friends.

The course will take place on Saturday 3 June and is open to anyone looking to improve their land use and sustainability practices. Refreshments will be provided on the day, making it the perfect opportunity for participants to network with fellow small landowners and permaculture enthusiasts. BYO - hat, water bottle, notepad and a chair if you can.

The course is currently full, however interested individuals are encouraged to register for the waitlist here.
