Melliodora tours

_MG_2051Melliodora opens its doors to the public from September to May each year.

We have decided to integrate our tours into a whole day outing. To understand Melliodora you have to understand the whole system, how all components relate to each other. During the morning, the emphasis is more on the house. Zone zero, the epicentre of life. After the lunch break, exploration of zone 1 and into the outer zones resumes. You will see how those zones integrate, interact and create the whole. In a very permaculture way.
Guided by the co-founder of the permaculture concept, David Holmgren and his partner Su Dennett, the Melliodora house and garden tour you will enable you a great insight into the Melliodora way of life. Su will prepare morning and afternoon tea – scrumptious, wholesome and local.

The tour begins at 10 am, breaks for lunch between 12.30 and 2pm, and continues at 2pm. In the morning, the emphasis is more on zone zero, the house, while in the afternoon the tour will take you into and out to the garden farm. The day concludes at 4.30pm.

  1. I’d love to be on a waiting list for one of the full house tours for this year?
    Sadly I found them too late…
    Or… can we expect more later this year or next year?
    thanks for sharing with us as always!

    1. Hi Irene, I will put your name on the waiting list for the April + May tours. The new season’s tours (Oct 2019 – May 2020) will be released soon – stay tuned…
