A fun filled day of food, tours, presentations and workshops and the opportunity to explore the gardens of the world-class Permaculture training facility, Djanbung Gardens, will be held on June 13, 10am-4pm.

Come and learn about animal systems, sustainable energy, composting, appropriate technologies, edible weeds, tiny houses, alternate uses of unused animal parts and much more! There’s something for everyone. Entry is by donation.

This year’s theme ‘Abundance is Bliss’ will be an educational showcase empowering individuals to embrace the abundance nature provides through good permaculture design and an inclusive community.

The day is organized by the Permaculture College Australia students, who will be conducting workshops and tours to share what they’ve been learning with the wider community.  “I have learned things about our relationship with the earth I never imagined were possible and feel reconnected and excited to be a conscious and positive contributor.” says Dominic Giblin, a diploma student.

The Abundance Café will be open all day selling delicious lunches and refreshments from local organic and garden produce. Plants, seedlings, tubers, produce and books will be for sale to raise funds for student resources.

The annual Open Day has been going since 2005 to give people the opportunity to reconnect with nature and it’s systems to learn and grow together in a fun, practical and sustainable way. This year Djanbung Gardens celebrates its 21st year of operation, from a barren cow pasture to a showcase of permaculture in practice.

Djanbung Gardens is the home campus of Permaculture College Australia, conveniently located within walking distance of Nimbin’s village centre, at 74 Cecil Street, just 300m past the Nimbin Showground.
