There is no better way to learn how the household economy works than to take part in the whole day guided tour at Melliodora – now online!
About this Event
For the first time ever, David Holmgren and Su Dennett are opening the doors of Melliodora to an online audience. Situated in the Victorian central highlands, Melliodora is one of the best examples of working cool-temperate climate permaculture in the country.
The day begins at 10am (AEST)* with a tour of the main homestead house. We will break for lunch between 12.30pm and 2pm. In the afternoon the tour will take you around the extensive garden farm.
There will be a Q&A for the house tour at 12pm and a Q&A for the property tour at 4pm. Your questions will be asked directly to David, time permitting.
Throughout the tour David will mention books that he has written, published or those that have influenced his thinking. These books can be found at the Holmgren Design Store, and at Melliodora Wholesale (for purchases over $150).
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience how permaculture design can help restore and improve land, and provide for you and your household’s needs within the context of an ethical and regenerative framework.
*PLEASE NOTE: Daylight Savings in Australia commences at 12 midnight the night before the tour.
If you would like to do further exploration, you might like the Melliodora eBook (available in CD or PDF version): a detailed record of how Melliodora was designed and established, explaining the logic behind design decisions, detailed plans, plant species selection and how it all works together as a comprehensive system.
It is a refresher of the tour, a valuable reference for your own project, and an ideal way to introduce family and friends to permaculture.
