In follow-up to our previous post, we are happy to share these few pictures from yet another successful Urban Permaculture Workshop in Melbourne.
We were aiming for a 90% hands-on workshop, and it sure was! After a bit of theory, we used recycled materials to build and design a miniature version of a standard urban property.
Fruit trees, chickens, ponds, grey water systems, vegetable gardens, worm farms, water tanks, pergolas, climbing plants, green walls, noise and wind management… We had a look at and explored how all these elements can work together to become one system, and how we can use this to our advantage – especially when working with small urban spaces.
Many thanks to Laneway Learning for such a great opportunity and to all the participants for their enthusiasm and phenomenal inputs!
A bit of theory…
A lot of experiments.
A few wild ideas (goats on the roof someone?).
And a fun look at what everyone else has come up with!
