The story so far

Tamara left Bunyip in April 2009 seeking what she needed to know for her permaculture future. She spent 9 months at her Aunt Catherine's farm in Arid South Australia, then 9 months at Bill and Lisa Mollison's farm in Tasmania. Now she's off on more adventures starting Moonrise School of Permaculture and teaching Permaculture Design Courses in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges near Melbourne. Ducky is there for the journey...

Permaculture Design Certificate Belgrave 2013

With Tamara, Taj, Ducky and friends

Taj is back from her permaculture research trip overseas and we are living the dream in the beginnings of our permaculture home in the lush animal filled forests of Belgrave! We are running our courses from our one acre blank canvas which is ready for students to aid us with design and implementation of swales, food forests, multi zone gardens, chooks, ducks, and much more (the field is open to the intelect).

Taj and Tamara’s awesome upcoming courses:  

The first is a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) running weekly on Saturdays from the new home of Taj and Tamara, in Belgrave. This is a more intensive weekly course that will allow people with weekends off to spend the whole day learning with us. We are extremely excited to share our new home and garden with our students, where we will teach the full 72hr internationally recognized PDC. 

This starts on Saturday January 19th. It then runs until April. The days start at 10am and we finish at 5pm. We have a shared lunch and shared morning afternoon tea (this keeps the price down for everyone).

The second PDC starts on January 16th and is running on Wednesday nights from 6-9.30 with a shared dinner. The amazing Taj will also be doing some cooking - possibly even acorn bread!!!

There are other PDCs coming up, and we take requests!!!

Getting there: We are in Belgrave, up behind Puffing Billy. We are walking distance from the station, but it is a very steep walk and you'll need to be fit! We are very happy to pick people up from Belgrave train station. People can also drive and park on the road. We'll give specific instructions to confirmed students.

For the Saturday course we will pick you up provided you get the train that arrives at 9.09 at Belgrave - (Lilydale train leaving Flinders St station at 7.47 and changing at Ringwood). Eek! Thats early - but we'd like everyone to arrive by 9.30 so we can start on time at 10am.

There will be more PDCs and other courses on offer, please contact Tamara for information:

$600 waged
$400 concession
