Welcome to our family run farm & permaculture education centre
We combine permaculture, bio-dynamics and syntropy to enrich soil fertility, sequester carbon, enhance wildlife and provide a model for regenerative, creative living.
Caring For The Land
We have over 30 years of international experience in orchestrating succession to bring land to its full potential of natural abundance and diversity.
We constantly strive towards being carbon negative through carbon sequestration, driving 100% electric, biking, solar energy and supplying to our local customers
With over 200 plant species, our food forest creates a sanctuary and breeding zones for our native birds, Tui, Kūkūpa, Pāteke,
Korimako, Pīwakawaka, Ruru, and Kiwi to name a few
PermaDynamics marries Permaculture and Biodynamics, as both originate from a foundational principle of respecting the land as a living organism. Permaculture offers strategies to ensure a creative cycle between elements in which the output of one becomes the input of another. Biodynamics expounds a deep understanding of soil fertility, enhances the subtle energies of the farm and peacefully harbours the intrinsic nature of all the animals on our farm.
PermaDynamics is a productive certified organic permaculture farm on community trust land in Matapouri, Northland. Over the last 15 years we have drastically transformed our clay soil into deep topsoil with ever increasing fertility. We successfully implement carbon sequestration techniques and
continually observe, learn and integrate more layers into our intricate system.
From a steep kikuyu smothered slope we have created a profitable food forest with no other means than orchestrating diversity and succession. We now have an abundant, fully functioning eco-system which harbours over 200 species of plants and creates sanctuary and breeding zones for native wild life.
With hügel beds, swales, terraces, in-situ mulch production, biochar and dense perennial vegetation we are successfully rehydrating and restoring steep, marginal land to achieve high yielding systems.
Our food forest, mushroom grove and market garden provides our family and community with nutrient dense, certified organic food. Our vast knowledge of the land, seed collection and food bank offers inspiration to all who wish to become more self sufficient through regenerative agriculture.
Experience how our permaculture system generates creative livelihoods of abundance.
Observe the dynamic interaction between landscape, climate, water, plants and animal species.
Immerse yourself in this unique opportunity of learning the science of permaculture, amongst an abundant, diverse, farm where we truly live what we teach.
Caring for the soil, sequestering carbon, cycling water, cherishing diversity.
