What our students say…

Past Milkwood courses…

We’ve been teaching skills for sustainable living for 15+ years.

We’ve led face-to-face courses and workshops on everything from regenerative agriculture, natural building, warré beekeeping and organic veggie gardening to fermentation, cheesemaking and our full Permaculture Design Certificate.

From 2007 to 2019, we stewarded more than 8,500 happy students through SO MANY amazing courses held at various locations across Australia – and it was such an honour.

More recently, our focus has turned to online courses – to ensure these important skills and knowledge can be more accessible to all types of folks, all over the world. But, if you like, you can learn more about our past face-to-face courses here.
