Permaculture Meets Creative Design Weekend

 A weekend full of Learning, Creativity, Inspiration, Community Connection, Tours and Site Visits, Ideas, Fun, Local Food and Connection with Nature. 

Permaculture immersion weekends are held a couple of times each year and are hosted and facilitated by Robin Clayfield and Friends. These workshops support participants to learn Permaculture while being actively inspired to design and make creative, functional and productive gardens and environments through hands-on learning, theory sessions using creative processes, tours of Crystal Waters Permaculture Village and garden visits.

Local food and garden salads are a delicious part of the weekend and an experience of the Crystal Waters organic, sourdough, woodfired bakery is a highlight for most participants.
