Cultivating the Future
University Students
Permaculture Curriculum Project


SEED International offers engaging and participatory environmental education programs for university groups, TAFE Colleges and school students of all ages. These programs are individually designed to meet the needs of each group.

Visits can be from half-day workshops to weeklong camps. Annual camps are scheduled for Year 11 and 12 Geography groups as Permaculture is now an elective in the curriculum.

Program leaders: Morag Gamble and Evan Raymond
