You will get first hand experience with permaculture and traditional farming and cooking methods while each week working on the projects.

The program is designed to be implemented over the 10 week school term.

About the The Living Classroom Homeschool program:
The Living Classroom Project is exited to be able to extend its program to the homeschool community with 2 of its founding members Aaron and Vanessa as facilitators this term.
The program is a permaculture and wholefood cooking program based on the Living Classroom Projects student program for ages 8 years +
Students will have the opportunity to become familiar with permaculture principles and theories as well as hands on learning on a working permaculture farm, Lulu’s Perch, in Pinbarren.
Lulu’s Perch has a ‘school room’ where students can learn theory and come together to work on projects, a food forest, a variety of composting facilities, livestock systems, a kitchen garden and kitchen space where students can prepare food to share.
Students will love jumping straight into the wonderful world of gardening by first exploring the established permaculture gardens, discovering all the amazing plants that are growing, choosing what to grow for the next project, making magic garden potions to feed the soil and getting up close to nature with animals both big and small from miniature goats, geese and chickens to wriggly worms and garden pollinators. All the while learning all about the amazing world of permaculture.
While in the kitchen there will be many more potions mixed and made into delicious dishes to share, discovering traditional and cultural methods of preparing and using a variety of edible plants, vegetables, flowers and herbs.
