What do you do when you’re stuck on beautiful North Stradbroke Island for a few days and can’t make bee boxes. Well you catch up on some reading and drink great beer of course!! But I still managed to find some bees👍 #agreensoul #greenbeaconbrewing #milkwoodpermaculture

Totally obsessed with my new book @milkwood_permaculture. Each chapter focuses on something different. Tomatoes, bees, foraging and this weeks fav is SEAWEED. So delish and so good for you. Rinsed and perfect addition to our Japanese dinner along with radishes, onion shoots, spinach and coriander from the garden.

Natural beekeeping practices allows the bees to build their own honey comb. The honey comb is paper thin and edible. 🐝 We are so fortunate in Australia. Did you know in China bees have almost ceased to exist due to excessive use of pesticides and insecticides? Without bees, crops cannot be pollinated. 😭 . . . #beecare #honey #honeycomb #naturalhoney #sustainableliving #caringforourbees #beekeeping #liquidgold #igfood #instafood #australianhoney #naturalbeekeeping #milkwoodpermaculture

I’m freshly back from a complete switch off from work and volunteering...we do need to learn when enough is enough and I was done, my cup was full and I needed to recharge the batteries with the fambam. I may have purchased a few books on my break and spent the last half hour taking a quick time out before heading off to plant seedlings and sow seeds after this glorious rain. I’ve started suggesting to clients to consider beehives on their properties for pollination, food and all of the bee benefits that come with having a hive. I’ve loved reading the beekeeping section of Milkwood by Nick and Kirsten from Milkwood Permaculture. I’m also buried deep in The Bee Friendly Garden by Doug Purdie. Two fantastic books that enhance what I do and load me up with new facts. We are so lucky to have the fantastic Mudgee Bee Group here who are the local encyclopaedias and guides on all things honey buzzy. Be nice to bees people and please, PLEASE buy your honey locally or from a reputable seller. The whole honey debacle isn’t a joke, it’s a threat. It’s easy to buy local so just do it. If we lose bees and all of their awesomeness, we are kind of in the shit. #keepingitreal . . . . #mudgee #mudgeeregion #savethebees #bees #localhoney #abitofarant #beefriendlygardening #beefriendlygarden #milkwoodpermaculture #dougpurdie #milkwood #newbooks #gardeningbooks #lifelessons #growyourownfood #micdrop @milkwood_permaculture @dougpurdie

Sometimes when I teach on Permaculture Design Courses I feel so energised at the end of the day. And sometimes, like today, I feel absolutely wrecked. It may have something to do with the hours of standing and talking that teaching involves, and all the prep and stress of being up there while people look at you. Each time I do this it gets easier. And each time I gain even more respect for the seasoned PDC teachers who have taken me under their wings, and who teach all the time like it's no big deal. You are my heroes. . Luckily I've figured out the antidote to the post teaching slump: many cups of tea and a good book. ☕️☕️☕️ It's working already 😁 . . . Thanks @milkwood_nick for the photo, you sneaky bunny, you.

Over the weekend, on the first calendar day of spring, these two wonderful humans, Kirsten and Nick of @milkwood_permaculture launched their new book, Milkwood. As mentors, ongoing inspiration and Em and Zags first stepping stone into the world of permaculture and farming many years ago it was so special to host their launch on our farm at @camperdowncommons. Their book is an incredibly beautiful, educational and accessible introduction to creating change for yourself, your community, and on a wider scale. Starting with five of the very best ‘gateway drugs’ into living fully and with minimal impact - growing tomatoes, mushrooms, keeping bees, foraging seaweed and wild foods. Get one for yourself - and everyone else in your life, it’s so damn good. 🙌 . (Book pic by @verso.books )

. . Anyone that visits from now will become very familiar with this beauty. It’s top shelf material but the kind that must stay in sight and within arms reach for everybody to read as this is the stuff we all need to be learning, and doing and this awesome book by inspirational legends @milkwood_permaculture shows how it’s done. . . . . The more we learn about Permaculture, the more we believe it’s the one thing that could actually save this crazy effed up world we live in today. . . . .

Blue Gum logs waiting to be drilled & plugged with shiitake inoculated plugs. Learning so that I can expand my knowledge, to enrich my life by what I learn, is essential to me. It is a bit of a joke amongst friends & clients alike about the number of courses I do. My answer is how do you know what you want to include in your life unless you learn more about it. This past weekend I spent two fabulous days at a Mushroom Cultuvation Course run by @milkwood_permaculture This is the third course I have done with them (Natural Bee Keeping & Urban Farming were the other two). For someone who knew absolutely nothing about growing mushrooms it ticked every box. If you are interested in permaculture I can not recommend @milkwood_permaculture highly enough. A consistently high standard, informative & relevant. In terms of the mushroom cultivation, I expect a few failures along the way, but am looking forward to the journey. #milkwoodpermaculture #mushroomcultivation #learningnewthings #permaculture #everydaycounts #simpleliving #livingsimply

If you’re not an experienced gardener, you might have questions about spacing your root crops in the garden, and how and when to thin them. The amazing @milkwood_permaculture has this great advice for thinning your plants as they grow 👉🏻 “Thinnings - beetroot and radish. A few weeks after planting these crops from seed, thinning is an essential task to ensure a good crop later down the track. Firstly we thin to a one-finger spacing, to let the babies grow. Then we thin again some weeks later, to a four-finger spacing, to ensure good sized root crops. . . That's two rounds of tasty, crunchy thinnings to harvest, perfect for salads, soups, stews or fermenting. And three rounds of harvesting total, each of which are delicious in their own way.” 🙌🏻 📷 @milkwood_permaculture #milkwoodpermaculture #milkwood #permaculture #gardentips

Exciting News! Our new 1 day introduction to Warré beekeeping course is live. Please go to the Milkwood site for more details and bookings: A little bit of history... Since 2009 we've taught over 1,000 students the art and craft of natural comb, bee-friendly beekeeping. From Albury to Byron Bay and everywhere in between we've had the pleasure of meeting so many great people and educating the community about the importance and joy of natural, bee-friendly beekeeping with Warré hives. This new 1 day course will be a condensed version of the previous 2 day course. We've made this decision so we can also offer a 'stage 2' advanced Warré beekeeping course, to continue to help people on their journey as natural beekeepers. The Intro course will provide you with all the basics to get started and keep bees for your first season or two, and the advanced course will be there to increase your skills, confidence and understanding as a more experienced apiarist. The advanced course will be up on the Milkwood site in the coming weeks. Photo credit: Emma Malfroy.

Kimchi’s done! It smelled pretty darn ripe walking in the front door this evening, so we knew it was time to test it, and found it to be spot on. Pleasantly sour, complex, and ever-so-slightly fizzy, letting us know that there was an active ferment going on. . So it’s jarred up (a few small gifts again), sealed, and in the fridge now, which will slow down the fermentation and allow us to dip into the jar for several months. Although we suspect it’ll be finished long before then! . . We (mostly) followed @milkwood_permaculture ’s recipe for this batch, and the flavour balance is amazing. Thanks for the constant inspiration Kirsten & Nick!

Use edges and value the marginal - this is something I learnt recently and not easy in everyday life but nature does it brilliantly - Usually I’d walk pass this and admire the industrial beauty, today I walked passed and noticed for the first time the trees, shrubs and weeds growing in such a harsh landscape - I could even name the trees growing on this edge! #mademyday #valuethemarginal #diversity #industrialbeauty #naturedoesitbetter #permaculture #milkwoodpermaculture #milkwoodpdc #permiesdoitbetter #newlenses

Yesterday was forestry day out at Fryers Forest Ecovillage. It's a day where sick and crooked gum trees are cut down and stacked for firewood under a planned forestry management system that helps the strong trees to grow better, reduces fire hazard, and builds soil and habitat. Also, it means we get sustainably grown fire wood and building timber. Yay for #forestmanagement !

Double tap if you dream of having a vegetable garden like this outside your front door? . 🏡 . 3 years ago we did too! We dreamt, we wrote it down and sketched it out. We believed we could do it, and so can you! . 🌿 . So whats the first thing you should do if you’re dreaming of starting a homestead, build a permaculture property or a farm business? Well, the first thing we did was ‘Find the others!’ Find the people in your industry that are completely rocking it! Look to them for inspiration and learning. For us, these people where @milkwood_permaculture . If you’re into #permaculture you’ve heard of Milkwood and you’ve probably read their blogs. They have (in our opinion) the best, most relevant and applicable permaculture content out there. They’re walking their talk and have inspired our journey from Day 1. We didn’t wait long to get in touch with them for some form of collaboration, and finally, 3 years later, the stars have aligned! ✨ . 🥁 🥁 🥁🥁 . We are extremely excited to shout this off our bamboo rooftop!!! Milkwood’s Nick Ritar @milkwood_nick is coming to our little farm in Bali to lead our next Permaculture Design Course happening in 3 months, June 22 - July 7. Hop on over to their insta pages and see what they’re up to, its glimpses & stories of everything thats good in the world. A life of regenerating the earth with permaculture. Nick has taught over 30 #pdc s and together with his wife Kirsten and son Ashar live on David Holmgren’s (Co-Originator of Permaculture) Melliodora property. We’re keen to have Nick over to collaborate in creating an epic course for you all. Join us to gain the skills you need to create a garden like ours and hopefully way better! Bookings are out for the course and available via the link in our profile. . 🌿 . P.S If you come this June we’ll show you the vision we created for the farm back in 2014 before it all started, including our initial logo & web sketches 🙈. • • • • • • • • • #permaculturedesigncourse #kulkulpdc #kulkulfarm #permaculturebali #pdc #milkwoodpermaculture #permaculture #organicgardening #growsomethinggreen #growyourownfood #growyourown #horticulture #homestead #sustainableliving #sustainabletravel

Espalier is a technique where a tree is grown against a fence or wall . Apple and pears are probably the most suitable trees for doing this . All you need is some wire and plenty of time as they do take a few years to look any good ! Since I’m growing in pots I’ve purchased 2 dwarf apple varieties ( Granny Smith / Pink lady ) which will cross pollinate and increase yield . As you can see I’ve thinned out both these trees to 3 branches . One main vertical stem an two horizontal branches . I then cut the main vertical stem back to encourage shoots which will then become my next level of horizontal branches and main stem . Done properly espaliers look absolutely amazing and cost a small fortune. If planting in pots always use a quality potting mix ( I use Tim’s own ) and be sure to water in well then mulch , then water again .. . . . . . . . . #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #growingfood #camdencommunitygarden #organicgarden #organic #organicgardening #organicgardenermag #gardenactivist #gardeninspiration #gardening #gardeningaustraliamag #growingfood #growsomethinggreen #growyourown #sustainablesprout #sustainableliving #sustainability #milkwoodpermaculture #permaculture #urbanfarmer2570 #timsgardencentre

I’m always going crook at @chantelle_obrien_ about cutting her herbs back and this is why ! Not the best quality video I know but these girls are super shy . Here we have 1 of the many ( over 1500 ) species of native bee you might have but have in your backyard but never noticed . This particular bee is a Leaf Cutter Bee , named after their tendency to cut holes in leaves ( my roses at narellan vale used to have numerous perfect circles cut into them ) if you’ve ever wondered what’s doing that this is the culprit, they actually use the leaves as part of a cradle for their young ,, unlike honey bees who are social these girls are solitary and live in holes or burrows in walls or mud . They can sting but are not aggressive and won’t defend their home like honey bees . . . . . . . . . #nativebees #leafcutterbee #bee #bees #savethebees #beekeeping #beekeeper #sydneystinglessbees #beeyourselfaustralia #camdencommunitygarden #herbgarden #mygarden #organicgarden #organicgardening #organicgardenermag #gardenactivist #gardeningaustralia #gardeningaustraliamag #urbanfarmer #urbanbeekeeper2570 #urbanfarm #urbanfarmer2570 #urbanorganicgardener #urbanorganicgardenersrepublic #epicgardening #permaculture #milkwoodpermaculture

Visitors to the garden or followers on instagram may have noticed we have a varied collection of different breeds of chickens , so I thought I’d take some pics and explain a bit about each breed and what makes them unique from the others .. Here we have our 2nd generation olive egger pullet , whilst not a recognised breed yet olive eggers are a cross between a dark egg layer and a blue egg layer ( Black French Copper Maran / Araucana in this case ) whilst olive eggs are hoped for they’re not guaranteed an sometimes you’ll end up with light blue or light green eggs . This pullet is shy and gentle and mixes with the other breeds happily. . . . . . . . #camdencommunitygarden #camdentownfarm #camden #2570 #communitygarden #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardenersrepublic #urbanorganicgardener #urbanfarmer #urbanfarmer2570 #organicgarden #organicgardenermag #organic #permaculture #milkwoodpermaculture #thehappygardeninglife #epicgardening #gardenactivist #leahschookshed #allotment #growingfood #growyourownfood #eggs #fresheggs #backyardchickens #chicken #chook #chickensofinstagram

Cultivating Community together with @milkwood_permaculture are very excited to host a conversation with urban farming pioneer, inspiring author and tireless advocate for sustainable agriculture, Micheal Ableman. Micheal will share insights from his latest book Street Farm, an inspirational account of how residents in the notorious Low Track in Vancouver, British Columbia- one of the worst urban slums in North America- joined together to create an urban farm as a means of addressing the chronic problems in their neighbourhood. Following Micheal’s presentation we will venture across the road for a garden tour of one of Cultivating Community’s public housing community gardens on the Richmond public housing estate where residents grow an abundant and diverse range of edible and medicinal plants while connecting with each other over a shared love of gardening and food plants. This fabulous event takes place on Saturday February 10th from 10am-11.30am. Payment is based on what you can afford but bookings are essential so check out our Facebook page for further details and link to bookings. Hope to see you there!!! #cultivatingcommunity #urbanagriculture #michealableman #communitygardens #streetfarm #vancouver #milkwoodpermaculture

me, version 1.0, the start of the road.. after studying landscape design and horticulture at uni I then decided to veer left and start floristry. Long story short I felt there was something missing from my chosen fields- I was naively rattled by the office life of landscape design and the chemicals, monocultures, miles and waste involved in the cut flower industry. Finding permaculture through @milkwood_permaculture & @goodlife_permaculture was the catalyst that set off this #farmerflorist journey. It tied my strings of knowledge and experience together while offering sooo much more & along with basic biodynamics, is the backbone for everything that is Alchemilla.
