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.

On our first visit to the farm we were amazed at its diversity, with variations in topography, orientation, vegetation, soil type and probable micro climates.

All the elements we had been looking for in our future Permaculture adventure, being on the beautiful Allyn River was the icing on the cake.

The final element was that very little development had been carried out, leaving a clean slate for our imagination.

We understand that apart from a few horses being agisted, the farm had not been stocked for a long time or ‘improved’ with fertilzer or chemicals.
