In this session you'll have the chance to explore Kat Lavers' award-winning permaculture kitchen garden to learn how such a small space has been able to provide over 350kg of food in a single year. For anyone who has dreamed of growing more food in the space they have, this session will focus on how to get more out of a small space with less work by incorporating permaculture design principles and thoughtful planning.

About Kat Lavers

Kat Lavers is a garden farmer, permaculture designer and facilitator. Her award-winning urban permaculture system, 'The Plummery', is featured in permaculture co-originator David Holmgren's book RetroSuburbia. The 280 square metre block produces almost all the household's herbs, veggies, fruit and eggs (more than 350kg in 2016!) while using only 46 litres of mains water per person and 3.9 kilowatt hours of electricity per day.

When she's not teaching permaculture and organic gardening, Kat designs urban agriculture projects and education programs with local councils and communities, and is a volunteer coordinator of Permablitz Melbourne.

Ticket price: $30 which includes workshop notes

Availability: 17 people maximum per session
