About Us

Nestled amongst a Eucalyptus Forest on the Mid North Coast of NSW Garden to Table Permaculture is just 3 hours drive north of Sydney. We are passionate about teaching people how easy it is to grow and prepare their own food in line with the Permaculture Ethics – Earth Care, People Care & Fair Share.

A small balcony garden in the city, a suburban block or acres, Garden to Table Permaculture will teach you how to make growing food part of your everyday life and have food at your fingertips to nourish yourself, your family and your community.
