Permaculture Design Course

We have had a number of people express interest in a permablitz this year. Permablitzes offer so many rewards – it’s a fabulous day of conversation, learning, connection, and of course progressing your landscape design. From acreage to a small back yard, laying irrigation pipes, to weeding and everything in between, it’s a great skill share opportunity in a friendly environment. Children are always welcome as they are the permies of the future! If a blitz appeals to you, simply email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Mushroom Workshop


April 29th, 2017     2-4.30pm   Venue - FORP Hall - Royal Park Buninyong - 1101 Warrenheip St Buninyong.

This mushroom workshop will be run by Aaron Boyer of Urbankulture who recently ran some mushroom workshops in the district that were highly recommended by one of our Committee who attended (Karen!). His website is www.urbankulture.com.au

From the website:
"Aaron Boyer, the founder of Urban Kulture has been a fungiphile since 2010 and is fascinated by the idea of growing food from waste products, and the medicinal benefits that mushrooms provide. Aaron started his adventure collecting spent grains and coffee grounds from local breweries and cafes to reduce waste and grow mushrooms to supply local eating establishments, and Aaron is now sharing the knowledge and skills he has developed in mushroom cultivation by teaching 'Mushroom to Mushroom' workshops Australia wide."

Cost for BPG financial members ONLY is $20. Usually this workshop is $80 but we want to say "Thanks" to you for being a financial member so have decided to significantly subsidise the event. We plan to have a few such 'members-only' events each year.

**Please note this event is ONLY open to current financial members.

Numbers are limited and if we don't have sufficient enrolments from BPG members we will offer the remaining places to the public. (I doubt this will be needed). We know you might have friends or family who would love to do this workshop, but Aaron will also offer open public workshops throughout the year so perhaps they can book in there - or you'll be so good you can teach them yourself!
