Allyn River Permaculture

Permaculture demonstration farm in the Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia

Permaculture is a design system and philosophy that emulates the patterns in nature to holistically and sustainably integrate the physical and social needs of people and the ecosystem.

What a difference a week makes

Great, our first runoff since January 2016. We have had about 110mm of rain in the last week, (still well below our average) all the swales and dams have refilled and are overflowing so its great to see the system working again.

The Allyn River is at about half flood so all the algal growth from the stagnant water has been cleaned out so all the wild life will be looking towards a great Autumn.

Many of our plants are confused with many of the fruit trees coming into flower.

With the heat gone, we hope we can get onto rebuilding the vegetable gardens let go during this exceptional summer.

So here’s looking forward to a productive autumn and winter.
