Victorian permaculturists

One of the lovely people who read this blog has asked me if I know anyone working with a mandala system in a cooler temperate climate (ie Western Victoria).  Or really, anyone with a working permaculture system in that climate.

    Hi Linda, We have a very active permaculture group in Ballarat and surrounds. I even know somebody with a mandala system. I’d be happy to talk to anyone who needs info on permaculture in this climate.

    I was imagining a gardener in a hoop dress with a bonnet and umbrella! 🙂

    I think Dean might look quite spiffing in a hoop dress! 🙂

    I have a mandala system based on your book in Athens, Greece. (pictures would have been soooooo helpful, by the way…)

    Athens is pretty much the definition of a temperate climate. I use the garden as the basis for permaculture-oriented school visits.

    That is so nice to hear Anna! Yes, back when the book was first published, twenty years ago now, photos in books were rare. If I ever get to discuss a new version with the publishers, I shall suggest photos.

    We do!! We’re near warrnambool in south west vic and our mandala system is coming up 9 months old. It’s been very productive this summer . We only move our chooks every 4-6 weeks, and will give them a couple of months off in winter when things slow right down here (and put them in their warmer and more sheltered permanent pen). Happy to answer questions. We’re on Facebook as ‘Cleo’s Cottage’ if people want to see what’s going on here.
