Permaculture Food Forest

Te Paranui Permaculture Homestead is an organic biodiversity Project focusing on nutrition, cooperation and education.

Permaculture translates as: permanent agriculture that is sustainable and symbiotic for all species involved, working holistically with nature rather than against it. This begins with people care, earth care, fair share.

The natural systems are designed to supply needs for all, fertilising, nourishing, and protecting each other, thus replicating and supporting natural ecosystems. The surrounding wetlands act like a kidney for the earth; filtering and cleansing the water cycle and the environment. Our forest and vegetable gardens support this natural ecosystem whilst producing organic nutrient dense food.
