To celebrate International Permaculture Day, CERES is organising a community working bee in their food forest. Their food forest is home to their chooks and four rotational runs, terraces with fruit and nut trees and the newly built Honey Lane Hives bee display and teaching space. They would like to prep the area and plant some new trees to increase the number of productive plants and to create more shade options for their chooks. So go and get your hands dirty, help them plant around 500 plants and seedlings and learn more about the fundamentals of a working food forest.

Their site horticulturalist, Belinda Kennedy, and organic farm manager, Meg Stewart, will be leading the day’s activities and will share their knowledge about working on an organic farm and at CERES.
