Melliodora summer tours

Melliodora house tourThe 2013/14  season of public tours at Melliodora will continue on 12th January. The weather during summer will guarantee good photos for visitors touring through the farm garden system at Melliodora. There are two different tours on offer on the day and many choose to attend both tours.
The morning tour will guide visitors through the way the house functions to support the home-based lifestyle of David Holmgren and Su Dennett, as well as all the visitors and workers at Melliodora. Su will explain the principles behind passive solar house design, as well as show examples of practical applications at work. Ask Su about cooking; making miso, bread making, how to make weeds into ‘gourmet peasant’, etc., her expertise in this area is unsurpassed.
The afternoon tour explores the relationships between plants and animals, landscape and garden farming setups and designs. Along the way, you will see many  practical applications of permaculture principles. To hear David speak in his home paddock challenges and informs, and is guaranteed to be a memorable experience.
Note, we offer tour vouchers for either the morning, the afternoon, or the two tours on the same day. These vouchers are a great gift idea for the silly season or New Year.   To purchase please email us info[at]holmgren[dot]com[dot]au.
