Area CoveredDandenong Ranges, from Ferntree Gully to Macclesfield to Gembrook.

We are a group of around 80 members mostly situated in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges.
Our members, all with varying experience of permaculture, live on a diverse range of properties, ranging from suburban blocks in the outer eastern suburbs, to bush blocks in forested areas, to rural acreages.
Our monthly meetings (third Thursday) are informal social/educational evenings that often feature guest speakers and property visits. New members are welcome.
