Open day at Birrith

pathStsBirrith Birrith, a mature yet still evolving permaculture property in the permaculture neighbourhood of Hepburn has hosted two well attended open days and is hosting the third on November 8th.
This property was developed principally by Maureen Corbett, one of the original Solar Sisters, and the pillar of the Holmgren Design office. Maureen’s property is now for sale. The local permaculture community hope that the property is taken up by like minded sustainability conscious permaculture enthusiasts. If you are looking for a mature permaculture property, look no further. Come around to explore the vision of sustainable, home-based, healthy, happy living.

The property will be open from 1.30pm to 4pm. We will tour the property with Ian and/or Maureen and at 3.00pm there will be an afternoon tea, during which you are encouraged to ask questions and discuss options for living in community. If you are keen to join an eco-village but don’t know others there is the opportunity to meet them on this day and get it happening straight away.

No need to rush, relax in the garden and envisage a possible permaculture future.
