Planning a New Permaculture-Inspired Garden

What We’ll Do

Are you wondering where to start in planning your garden?  Or do you want to design and extend the gardens you already have?  If so, Debbie will take you through this practical session focused on basic planning concepts and inspiration.

This will be a practical workshop where we’ll look at Sophie and Nathan’s new block of land and soon-to-be-built home as a case studyof how to start planning a new permaculture-inspired garden.

Sophie and Nathan will join us to answer questions, and Debbie will guide us through the steps and considerations when planning this new garden.

Concepts discussed will also be applicable to any garden. This will include:

  • Considering Sophie and Nathan’s goals and personal needs for their garden
  • Analysing the site
  • Understanding the climate, sun, shade, rainfall, wind, frost aspect and terrain
  • Identifying possible microclimates and permaculture zones

Following this Connect and Learn evening, we’ll then visit Sophie and Nathan’s place for the Garden Insights visit on Sunday 12 September.  This will give us an important opportunity to see the property first hand and look at the various design aspects discussed.
