Enjoy learning about sustainable lifestyle choices.

Permaculture Education can be simple, fun and memorable with our Permaculture Courses and specialty workshops and fun-days which include
solar-power, solar cooking, gasifiers, repairing old treasures, up-cycling jewelry, garden design, WordPress, cooking from the garden, weaving, wild-tiling, clothes swaps, living fences and much more.

Permaculture Wollongong Institute was formed in 2014. Most of the workshop activities are based on Permaculture Visions mature demonstration site. The main organisers have been April Sampson-Kelly and Shane Moon. Shane Moon has run our most successful fun-days: The big clothes swaps.

The Permaculture Wollongong Institute is a fully independent, industry-endorsed Permaculture and sustainability education organisation with first-hand knowledge of the Illawarra’s unique bio-region and one of the first permaculture food forests in the Illawarra. Life is great when the food is real and your hands get dirty.  We can help to build resilience in the community, through healthy families and relationships, fostering the Australian sense of place and connection to nature and our landscape, and nurture sustainable practice.

It’s not work when you are having fun” Ted Trainer

Our Permaculture teaching syllabus is built on the work of Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. Our Permaculture courses have the knowledge base and experience support of Permaculture Visions International established in 1993.
