Community is a part of Permaculture. The ethics of Earth Care People Care and Fair Share call us to think beyond gardening and farming to how we integrate this with our community.

For some this means creating communal living, for others this means developing community in their suburb, town or village. Embracing the people we share this planet with and sharing resources with them is just as important as growing food to feed them. We find that many of our students come to permaculture through developing school gardens, community gardens, working in developing countries or wanting to find a way to share their lives with others that want to increase the health of their community.


A few we are involved with community ;

…. a monthly swap that welcomes all to swap plants, produce and seeds is now held at the Margaret River Organic Garden on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month.
