Kendall Permaculture Farm Program

PermEco Inc. maintains and improves the Kendall Permaculture Farm, the demonstration and education site where people learn and case studies are conducted. New solutions like syntropic farming and natural rotational grazing are regularly implemented on the farm, and constant maintenance is required to existing systems and facilities like fences, student and volunteer areas and animal spaces.

PermEco Inc. believes that a diverse demonstration and training site will inspire people that visit to learn more and implement solutions in their own environment. It is essential that people have practical examples they can learn, participate in and subsequently teach, which is what we are aiming for on the Kendall Permaculture Farm. The site currently demonstrates and teaches composting methods, biogas production, holistic animal management, food forestry and more. The site is run on a very low budget, so that people from all walks of life can see that things can be achieved regardless of funding. An emphasis is made on recycling, re-using and re-purposing materials or using abundant local materials. Most daily activities on the farm are done by volunteers, who also teach other volunteers.

The Kendall Permaculture Farm is located in the Noosa Hinterland town of Kin Kin in Queensland, Australia. It has been a Permaculture Demonstration and Education site since 2012, and over 350 people have been trained onsite since then, a lot of them staying for several months or more in order to learn as much as they can. It is located in the Noosa Biosphere area and within close access to the Noosa trail network. Lakes and the ocean are not far away. The Noosa area has been experiencing soil deposits from the Kin Kin area into the Noosa river and lake systems. By demonstrating our soil retention methods on the Kendall Permaculture Farm, we are aiming to educate other local land owners to create systems to prevent excess runoff from their land.

By staying on top of new solutions, methods and systems by implementing them onsite, the Farm can continue to supply high quality education and training for a more sustainable planet.

Records will be kept of all systems, maintenance and improvements. Products produced on the property will also be noted down and dated. These records will be on paper, as electronic versions will be too complex for this purpose. Records will be easily accessible by volunteers, students and trainees and we will regularly study them to see whether new methods and systems have made a positive or negative difference in the overall running of the Farm. New methods and systems will be published regularly on the website.
