Join Hannah Moloney for one day or permaculture power to help you design your own patch – in the city or out bush!

May 11th, 9am – 3pm

Join us for one day of exploration into permaculture. You’ll gain a solid introduction to permaculture foundations and the framework to design your own home in the city or out bush.

Immerse yourself in a proactive day of thinking, learning and exploring avenues to respond to some of the biggest social, environmental and economic challenges of our time in a proactive and positive way. Learn the basics in how you can apply permaculture to everything from house design, food production, energy systems and community development, all with a distinct Tasmanian flavour and focus..

Your permaculture course has completely changed my focus and approach towards my surroundings. I now have a clear vision and outlook of what I want to achieve In my garden and beyond. I have since been describing your course as a springboard. I left feeling inspired to continue learning more about permaculture and to take the first steps to creating a garden for my family to enjoy. 

THIS COURSE COVERS

  • Origins of permaculture and the global context
  • Permaculture ethics and principles
  • The permaculture design framework
  • Exploration of permaculture in action in urban and rural contexts.

STUDENTS RECEIVE

A copy of the Introduction to Permaculture book by Bill Mollison, morning and afternoon tea/refreshments (BYO lunch), course notes, and whole bunch of new friends and networks.

OUR TEACHING APPROACH

Just so you know, this is not a hands-on gardening course. This course is an engaging combination of theory and interactive group work. Plus a tour of Hannah’s garden to cap off the day to see some permaculture in action.

Two green thumbs up. Structure of the day, variety of delivery of information, engaging activities, amount of content covered, general warmth and enthusiasm all brilliant .

YOUR TEACHER

Hannah Moloney heads up Good Life Permaculture where she spends her time doing all types of environmental and sustainability education. She’s also a presenter of ABC TV’s Gardening Australia (dream gig), a bestselling author, a big fan of climate activism and an *avid* gardener.

Hannah’s happily committed to a life of living like it matters. Her teaching style is super engaging and based on decades of hands on experience in permaculture design and practice.

You’ll be in good hands!

VENUE

We’re holding this course across two venues. We’ll start the day at the Sustainable Learning Centre in Mt Nelson, Hobart.

After lunch we’ll finish off the day with a educational tour of Hannah’s garden in central Hobart to see some permaculture in action! Please note, Hannah’s garden is very steep and accessing it requires walking up a 100m steep, uneven staircase.

More information will be provided to students before the course.

I found it very inspiring, lovely to spend a weekend with like minded people while learning more about how to live sustainably while still enjoying a comfortable lifestyle.

I enjoyed the delivery of the workshop and particularly the constant interaction/exercises that took place between our small groups. Total involvement. Also liked discovering the principles of Permaculture and the connectivity that comes with it. Was useful for our private plans.

Fantastic , in general I’m not a great learner in a classroom setup but I was engaged and interested throughout the whole day

Brilliant! I had such a great day and left feeling motivated to keep learning.
