The current system of industrial, chemical based agriculture is causing massive loss of topsoil and fertility worldwide, and is one of the largest contributors to climate change through huge carbon emissions. In Australia, much of our once arable land is now unusable due to salinity, because of conventional farming practices. Many of our water systems have only a fraction of their original flows.

We need a new system that provides us with healthy, nutritious food, whilst regenerating degraded environments, and building topsoil & fertility. Permaculture is a ecological design science that enables us to achieve these goals Come and learn how you can restore ecosystems to health and productivity, be a part of a healthy food revolution, and acquire valuable knowledge & skills, that you can apply in your everyday life.

Kushala Prem is a permaculture teacher, designer, consultant and artisan landscaper. He is an engaging speaker and teacher, and is passionate about sharing knowledge around solutions for the global challenges that we are facing.
