Short description—organiser

Gold Coast Permaculture is a not for profit begun by a group of local volunteers to demonstrate how chemical free food can be grown in an urban environment. We make all our own soil through composting biomass that would have gone to landfill.

We provide opportunities for people to learn how to produce their own food. We cultivate unusual food plants such as Moringa, Ceylon Spinach and Cassava to promote biodiversity and encourage people to try food that grows easily in a sub-tropical environment.

We sell great vegetables and herbs at affordable prices to enable all people to access better nutrition.

No bookings required but email info@goldcoastpermaculture.org.au if more details about the day are required.
