What is permaculture?  Unpack the myth of what lies behind a permaculture garden.

The Perma Pixie (Taj Scicluna) will take you on a journey of discovery about Permaculture and how you can adopt these practices into your everyday in the garden.

This workshop will balance theory with the practical.  It will be hands on, lots of fun and designed so that you can take these new found skills and implement them in your own backyard.

About the Facilitator - Taj Scicluna (The Perma Pixie)

Being introduced to the world of Permaculture in 2007 changed Taj’s life forever!  Through participation in her first Permaculture Design Course in 2009, she felt as if she had finally found something that she could direct her energy to make a difference to the devastation that was happening to the Earth and its inhabitants.

She has completed two Permaculture Design Courses and a Permaculture Diploma along with a myriad of permaculture related workshops.  Taj has run Permaculture Design Courses in the Dandenong Ranges, competed two Permaculture Teacher Training courses with both Robyn Clayfield and Rosemary Morrow and self-studies Facilitation and Social Permaculture.  Taj was also a Board Director of Permaculture Australia in 2015.

Although her biggest passion is education, aiming to empower others to make changes to more rich and fulfilling ways of living, she loves to get her hands dirty by designing and creating lush edible and medicinal wonderlands!
