With the warm season drawing to a close, it’s the perfect time to learn to save seeds like a pro. In this session, you’ll explore Kat Lavers’ award-winning permaculture kitchen garden to learn her tips for harvesting and saving seeds ready for the years to come.

Kat Lavers is a garden farmer, permaculture designer and facilitator. Her award-winning urban permaculture system, ‘The Plummery’, is featured in permaculture co-originator David Holmgren’s book RetroSuburbia. The 280 square metre block produces almost all the household’s herbs, veggies, fruit and eggs (more than 420kg in 2018!) while using only 46 litres of mains water per person and 3.9 kilowatt hours of electricity per day.

When she’s not teaching permaculture and organic gardening, Kat designs urban agriculture projects and education programs with local councils and communities, and is a volunteer coordinator of Permablitz Melbourne.

The ticket price of $30 includes workshop notes

The address will be advised on booking.
