Here is the latest shot of the food forest, currently covered in colour. The flowers provide a great distraction for pests and an attractor for beneficial insects.
We’ve been working hard transforming permaculture properties around Lake Macquarie and we’re keen to share the results!
Check us out on facebook to the latest photos!
This summer Tree Frog will be putting on a series of workshops in Newcastle and out on a fantastic “No-commitment permaculture lifestyle” property near the Watagans, 45 min from Newcastle and just over an hour from Sydney.
Email Chris at TreeFrogPermaculture@gmail.com to join our mailing list, and add us on Facebook for regular updates.
Due to extreme popularity all of our chickens have been pre-purchased and we won’t be accepting any more orders this year.
We will continue to raise chicks but can’t expand any further due to the small size of our property.
Here’s some permaculture links to keep you amused and informed!
