We operate as a not-for-profit environmental organisation – The Drylands Foundation.

Our enterprises that fund our work in conservation and sustainability include:

Non-GMO, Open pollinated vegetable and herb heirloom seeds; and endemic native seeds

We offer environmental education and sustainability training as Permaculture practitioners, and are hosts for ‘Willing Workers On Organic Farms’ (WWOOF) and HelpX.

Tours of our farm and volunteering opportunities are available for individuals and organisations interested in learning more about Permaculture and sustainability in drylands environments.

Seeds are a wonderful thing! ... See MoreSee Less

Seeds are a wonderful thing!

Bring your container and I am happy to dig up and share our seedlings.. Vegetables from seed. Wow! This year I finally decided to throw out all our (yilgarn seeds) vegetable seed that had gone out of date. Some of it was more than 10 years old. I donated two large garden areas to the cause as I suspected lots of it would still grow. I covered it in a layer of Johnny's super homemade compost and here's what happened with no irrigation.
Open Sunday, 333 David Road, Waggrakine, WA 6530.
Ph 99 381628.
Local plants , local people, local wisdom.

We are open today for plant sales, Sunday.

In the Midwest region, now is the best time of the year to plant your native plants. After three big rains the ground is wet and the soils's biological activity is coming up to its prime which help your plant to establish. This all comes down to less work and irrigation needed to get your plants established. Just need rabbit protection and a bit of weeding later in the season.
We are open today, Sunday, 10am to 5.00pm.
