Permaculture is a philosophical approach that offers systems for the design of sustainable human living.  Permaculture seeks to preserve and extend natural systems whilst designing a cultivated ecology for food production.  Founded by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, permaculture offers design principles for permanent agricultural eco-systems that are stable, resilient and diverse to benefit life in all its forms.

Bellbunya community working together
maculture incorporates values for building resilient communities, working with natural processes and sustainable building, as well as food production.

Bellbunya's permaculture approach is exhibited in the landscape, using ponds, swales and bunds to capture and flow water that incorporate sub-tropical plants and herbs.

Bellbunya has hosted Permaculture Design Certificate Courses, Permaculture in Practice courses and Growing Roots programs. 

Details of courses currently on offer can be found on the Bellbunya web-site.
