On a lovely early summer evening at Yandoit Farm in central Victoria, Permaculture co-originator David Holmgren, Very Edible Gardens Director and PermaBlitz co-founder Dan Palmer & Regrarians Director Darren Doherty discuss with Regrarians’ Lisa Heenan the benefits of cooperation for local enterprises, the use of swales and a few other issues.

“It’s fab, it’s new, and the honey flows straight into the jar. It’s so easy. But then, powdered instant potato is easy, too. Does that make it a good idea?
Despite my mission to focus on positivistic messages of change, at Milkwood we’ve got a charter of calling a spade a spade.
And to call yet another plastic beehive addition which does not benefit the bees but only the beekeeper… what it is.
We’ve seen a lot (like, a LOT) of media about the Flow Hive ™ in this last week and after a few hundred questions about what we think of it, we thought we’d spell it out…”
“The best analogy I can think of to demonstrate this point is battery egg production vs pastured egg production.”

We The Teachers
“Several years ago, Rosemary decided to focus on teacher training courses in order to have a “multiplier effect” believing that the bottleneck keeping permaculture from growing more rapidly is not a shortage of curriculum and experience, but rather a shortage of competent permaculture teachers. So she created this TPT course to give people the skills and confidence needed to take the big step from being a practitioner to becoming a teacher.
Her wish is that permaculturists, many without funds or access to a face-to-face TPT course, will be able freely to access the course and so teach permaculture well; that other experienced teachers can learn new ideas; and that they can make the course their own…”

“Turn a tap and watch as pure fresh clean honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar. No mess, no fuss, no expensive processing equipment and the bees are hardly even disturbed.
“This really is a revolution, you can see into the hive, see when the honey is ready and take it away in such a gentle way.”
We are very excited to introduce our new invention that allows you to enjoy fresh honey straight out of your beehive without opening it. It’s far less stress for the bees and much much easier for the beekeeper.”
