Zaytuna Farm Autumn Tour
March 1 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm$149
Let us take you into the world of Permaculture with a weekend tour of our home, Zaytuna Farm, a property which is at the forefront of Permaculture Design.
Zaytuna Farm is a very active Permaculture demonstration site and education centre. It is also a highly productive working family farm, which opens it’s gates to interested members of the public, on very limited occasions.
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity, from which you will be able to observe the principles of Permaculture and witness the abundance of food and other yields that we produce from our various living environments and intricately designed systems.
Zaytuna Farm is situated on a sixty-six acre (27 hectares) property that fronts Terania Creek opposite the village of The Channon, Northern NSW. The property contains 800m of creek frontage, numerous swimming holes and abundant wildlife. The landscape is diverse, covering high frost-free hilltops, ridges and valleys containing both cleared paddock and forested areas.
What better way to learn about Permaculture than to take part in one of these special events. Geoff and Nadia Lawton, along with the team at Zaytuna Farm invite you to come and learn more about Permaculture and to see first hand how they apply it in their everyday lives to create sustainable abundance.
Our property tour will start at the education centre with a brief introduction to Permaculture. Our Zaytuna Farm team will then take you on a walk, inspecting some of the highlights of the farm including the animal housing, some of our biological cleaning elements, our natural buildings, our commercial farm projects, our compost systems, energy systems and food forests. You will be guided through our annual and perennial food systems, irrigation, potable water, soil conservation, waste systems & recycling, water harvesting and plenty more.
There will be points throughout the tour where you will get to meet with Nadia and Geoff Lawton*. You will have the opportunity to pitch in on morning and afternoon chores and get a little dirty with some hands-on experience, if you wish.
This tour takes place at Zaytuna Farm, which is located 1 kilometre from the village of the Channon, 20km outside of Lismore in New South Wales, Australia.
