It begins at your Doorstep!
"At Limestone Permaculture we strive to educate for a regenerative & sustainable future by exampling what is possible
right now with Permaculture Principles.!
We feel there has been an ‘awakening’ across our beautiful country, self reliance is on the rise again, urban & rural homesteading
has people taking their food & energy supply back into their own hands.
You can live a more natural, healthy & happier life, regardless of your home location or job type.
As 'Permie-Homesteaders', we are striving towards self-reliance & self-sufficiency through our food, water, shelter,
energy resources, soil, animals etc. though like most, we are still chipping away at our mortgage.
The good news is, this is lifestyle is truly possible..!
It begins with an aspiration & drive for change!
This eventuates to education, upskilling and planning to make a difference!
With each passing day we are transitioning to a more wholesome life, creating a more fulfilling and positive future,
not just for ourselves but also for our family, friends, community and students..!
So please join us, as we continue our journey on Limestone Farm, sharing our experiences, skills, knowledge
and the ability to care for our families, each other and the environment."

The Country Pumpkin Farmgate
As a part of Limestone Permaculture, the Farm-gate exists to provide the freshest, nutrient rich, beyond organic produce, affordable to our customers & following the Permaculture Ethics of Earth Care > People Care & Fair Share, the farm-gate provides ethical income towards the farm’s operational costs & inputs.
The old caravan (1962 Sunliner fiberglass caravan originally built in our Shire), came from a retired Stroud farmer Bernie Butler. After realising it’s potential as an eye catching farm-gate, ‘Bernie’ the caravan was reborn to make available our surplus produce.
Benefiting our community & travelers from near & afar, our farm-gate also operates as a small co-operative that provides other local producers an opportunity to sell their goods at a central location.
