Venue: The Birches Pre-Primary School, 1 Oribi Cres, Sarnia

Cost: R275 pp (email for bank details to secure booking)

This course introduces Permaculture, and its basic principles. We look at soil maintenance, natural fertilizers, and how to start your very own no-dig food garden, by using sheet-mulching and integrating herbs and companion plants. We also cover how to begin a food forest through cultivated ecology, an approach that imitates nature including biodiversity, bio-pest control and animals in your system. At the end of the course you will have a better idea of how to implement sustainable methods and use energy more efficiently as a result.

garden plant and seed exchange


Hallo, I am very interested in obtaining Spanish moss (oumans baard). I had some in my garden but it was stolen. We stay in Brackenfell, Cape Town and I would appreciate if you could let me know where I can obtain this plant.

Kind regards.
