Want to check out a keyline farm designed by P.A. Yeomans in western Sydney? Here’s your chance.

As part of  The Yeomans Project, our friends Lucas and Ian are hosting a field trip to the extremely interesting property ‘Oaks Orgaincs’ on May 4th… 

Peter Clinch, farmer at Oaks Organics, explaining how keyline design can be used for passive irrigation of water across a property without pipes or pumps..

We first visited this deeply interesting property in January 2010 as part of a Keyline Design course we ran – the property had been designed by P.A.Yeomans in the mid 20th century as is still managed in a way that incorporates keyline farming.

In the spirit of art meets farming, you can go have a look at this very special place with a busload of convivial types, stewarded by Lucas and Ian.

It doesnt matter if you’re coming at concepts like keyline farming from an art, a permaculture or a farming perspective – you’re welcome either way.

Tickets for the bus trip are here...

    I bet the water tables in that area are very high!

    I would love to go and live close to the oaks so prefer to drive myself – is there a cost if I do not take the bus?
