CelebrATE!

Tom and I are excited to open our gates to people for CelebrATE! on Labour Day weekend, and to showcase our permaculture property which is currently providing us with around 90% of our food, 100% of our cooking energy needs and most of our animal feed.
The not for profit Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast Inc. (www.permaculturesunshinecoast.org) is organising CelebrATE!, a two day celebration of Permaculture, Music and Food on our Permaculture Demonstration and Education site “Maungaraeeda” (Place of Food) in the Noosa Hinterland town of Kin Kin on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

Welcome to Kendall Permaculture!

Previously know as DIY Food and Health, we felt that our website had to reflect more who we are, rather than hiding behind a brand or different name. We are Tom Kendall and Zaia Kendall, a husband and wife team who live and breathe permaculture. Our property Maungaraeeda, which means place of food, supplies most of our daily needs. This requires a lot of hard work on a day to day basis, but it is enjoyable and extremely satisfying.
