Edendale Community Environment Farm

$50 for all 9 sessions
Living & Learning Nillumbik

Every Monday for 9 weeks. This is an entry-level course, so it is designed for participants with no prior knowledge or experience in horticulture.

To be eligible for the $50 government subsidised fee, you need to be either a permanent resident and/or an Australian Citizen/New Zealand Citizen and not enrolled in mainstream secondary school. Otherwise, $350.

Working as a team with fellow participants, you will gain a broad overview and practical, hands-on experience about such topics as:

  • Introduction to plant recognition.
  • Propagation.
  • Planting.
  • Soil properties.
  • Environmentally sustainable work practices.
  • Career pathways/further study in the horticulture industry.

You will spend a lot of time outdoors (getting your hands dirty!), along with some time in the classroom learning basic theory and exploring study pathways.

The course will be run by Justin Calverley.

  1. Hello
    Can you please tell me when the next Permaculture course will begin? Also to say I’m not looking for a career I’m simply wanting to know more about Permaculture and create an abundant vegetable garden.
    Thank you, warmly
