Melliodora tours for the season 2013/14

IMG_9227On Sept 1, the Melliodora resumes its popular monthly guided tours which continue through the warmer seasons. There is no better way to learn how household economy works, and garden and land are maintained and managed sustainably, than to take part in the two and half an hour tours at Melliodora, one of the world’s best examples of permaculture principles application. We run the “Solar house tour” in the morning and the “Garden farm tour” in the afternoon. You can take part in just one, or attend both on the same day.
This season, we have decided to include the Melliodora eBook on CD ($35) which is a record of the first 20 years of development of the site, in the tour price. The eBook details how the Melliodora you see was designed and established, explaining how some of the design decisions were made,  some specific techniques applied, why and how some of the plants were planted where they are, and so on. We believe this addition will enhance your experience at Melliodora long after you visit here. An ideal refresher of your visit here.
We have also introduced the new tour booking system. All you do to make bookings for the Melliodora tours, is go to our online shop and purchase the product called “Melliodora tours“. There should be enough add on options to meet all different types of requests, but if you are stuck, drop us a line. We want to make it work. If it doesn’t work for your particular group, we can always go back to good old pen and paper. It should be all clear if you read the Product Description carefully first.
The tours are extremely popular, but the places are strictly capped, so please make your bookings as soon as possible.
We are planning to bring in our third guided tour around Melliodora, tentatively called the “Beyond gardens tour”.  Details will be announced soon, so watch this space!

See you at Melliodora.
