Join us at the award-winning Randwick Sustainability Hub each Friday afternoon and learn skills under expert guidance in a friendly setting.

Small spaces can yield big results when productive gardens are designed according to permaculture principles. With many of us limited in space, this practical course led by permaculture expert Mitch Burnie, will help you grow more than you thought possible.

Over the ten weeks you will learn how to design and build a food forest in your backyard, how to identify different edible plants and look after them. This is a very practical course where we will be out in the garden quite a bit!
