Sensational Naomi a great opportunity in an inspirational environment ..... kudos And i am sure your influence will aid the cause

We've been out collecting seed (with the help of Punkie our Emu) and making soil mixes ready to start propagating new tubestock over summer, ready for the planting season in 2018.

Contact us about pre-orders or drop into our nursery for advice.

We also have plenty of existing sun and wind hardened stock which may be just what you are looking for and they are ready to plant out right now.

We are open Friday to Sunday 10am to 5pm, including New Years Eve. See you soon, Drylands Permaculture Nursery -'locally owned, locally grown'.
