March 7, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Our first Organic Vegie/Fruit growers discussion group will be at Silvia and Pete the Permie’s Telopea Mtn Nursery.
Silvia & Pete the Permie purchased their farm in 1994 and have since established an intensive orchard with over 1200 varieties of fruit trees (500+ apples & 100+ plums)! Many of them are rare varieties they are preserving for future generations. Scions are taken from the trees and used to graft onto rootstock in their nursery.
They also have a sub-tropical section with over 100 fruits such as guava, avocado and macadamia trees.
Their farm is certified biodynamic and run using permaculture principles & Silvia manages the sheep, goats, chickens etc. Pete the Permie & Silvia also run training programs throughout the year!
