About Us

Located in Geraldton, in the Midwest of Western Australia we demonstrate the practical application of Permaculture and environmental conservation. We operate as a not-for-profit environmental organisation – The Drylands Foundation.

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

  • Permaculture Nursery – locally grown plants suited to Geraldton and our Midwest
  • Garden Honey – harvested by hand from our own on-farm bee hives
  • Yilgarn Seeds – an endemic and heirloom seeds business for dryland climates.

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.
