With nearly 30 years of experience and literally thousands of farm plans under his belt, Darren J. Doherty comes to the Northern Rivers to teach the course “Forestry in Practice”.

Education

We run free and accessible courses, classes, talks and community actions. Our instructors are hands on people who live by what they teach. Let’s change it from the bottom up. You’d be surprised with what you can already do.

Talks

We can produce food and energy, harvest water, build our houses and manage our waste in ways that will leave a better planet for future generations. Book a talk and help us to create a better world spreading these ideas.

Guided visits

Visit the Holos Ridge project and learn how we produce food beyond organic standards creating soil, cleaning the air and regenerating the water tables. Our guided visit can be adapted to different age ranges and levels of ecological literacy. Come walk the talk with us.
