Morag Gamble teaches permaculture teachers and designers – join her online classes https://permacultureeducationinstitut…. She also visits amazing permaculture gardens – LIKE THIS ONE! Come and join Morag and Dan Deighton for an in-depth tour of his suburban permaculture garden.
This one hour garden tour is in like a mini permaculture course for those who want to do permaculture in small gardens. Dan’s suburban permaculture garden in Cooran, QLD is simply inspirational – as he is!.
In this video, Dan shows us how he has transformed his suburban landscape (and his neighbour’s) into an absolutely abundant permaculture oasis. He clearly explains how he has designed the spaces, prepares his garden beds, plants them out, creates incredible homemade plant food, processes water and food waste from the house, sets up a mini aquaculture system, and robust garden furniture – all the while sharing his design thinking.
The gifts he shares keep coming throughout the tour, right to the very end. I was trying to work out how to shorten film, but couldn’t decide what to chop out – it is all so valuable. So here is Dan’s garden. Enjoy and share!
