Permakai farm visit
February 26, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Opportunity to tour Rory and Jennifer’s organic farm in Waiuku. Permakai is a market garden with a difference. It is an example of collective farming where young people have the chance to develop their own business under the Permakai umbrella. They pay a nominal rent an under Rory and Jennifer’s stewardship they develop and grow produce for market, box schemes, and wholesale.
In this way Rory and Jennifer are achieving their dream of creating a resilient community. The farm has been designed using Permaculture principles and there are examples of agro-forestry, food forest, natural pest control, use of microclimates, and more.
Experienced educators, this should be an informative and enjoyable event.
