After completing this workshop you will be armed with the tools, knowledge and inspiration to design a beautiful permaculture garden. Leading the workshop is Ben Shaw, who transformed his previously barren backyard in Geelong to a bountiful food forest, using permaculture design principles.

Ben’s home has been used as an example of sustainable gardening for Sustainable House Day. His garden has also been featured in the Age, Green Magazine & Homelife as an example of a well designed, productive permaculture garden. Ben has been honing his gardening skills for over 2 decades, in particular through his work at Basil’s Farm where he established gardens which provide fresh produce for the restaurant. Ben has also been facilitating edible garden workshops since 2014.
