In Episode 2 of Permaculture Tours, we visit Melliodora, the home of David Holmgren and Su Dennett in Victoria, Australia.

David is the co-originator of the permaculture concept and this tour offers an insight into how he and Su have designed their home and gardens according to permaculture principles.

Come and take a tour through the four zones that make up their 1-hectare property – vegetable gardens, fruit trees, geese, goats and chickens, a tiny house, and a very cool “cool cupboard” in the kitchen!

Find out more about Melliodora and David and Su’s work:
