“Savour Soil was recommended to us by a friend who had heard we had moved. As busy people, with only slightly ‘green’ thumbs, we were keen to engage a consultant who could provide a property-specific report, complete with local knowledge – so that we wouldn’t be wasting time, energy and money planting the wrong plants in the wrong places. 

When we contacted Savour Soil, they outlined the three levels of consultancy services  provided. As we had settled on a large rural residential lot and wanted to plan our long term future there, we engaged Savour Soil on a full consultation basis so that we could commence the permaculture design, with an understanding that a number of elements take three to five years to implement. 

We were visited on a number of occasions, taking observations of the property, our lifestyle, and asking many questions. Most importantly, they listened to our dreams and goals and also took into account our limitations, particularly as we are time-poor, and provided a report that will help us create a garden that will feed our family and look after itself in an energy-efficient way. 

So the overall outcome was a property report that will help us achieve our goals and break them down so they are not as overwhelming. Their knowledge has provided us with a 25-year plan of growing our own food, educating our children and enjoying our property. They have been so approachable and eager to answer our questions and design our garden our way. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Savour Soils for anyone wanting to gain a deeper understanding of permaculture, or anyone seeking holistic advice on how best to feed their own family from their garden.”

“After completing my PDC and mapping out a design for my property I knew capturing water & improving the soil would have to be my first priority. Yet I still felt unsure exactly how to start. It was Savour Soil on-site consultation that filled that gap for me. Their probing questions and expertise helped me envisage how I could manage a gradual implementation of the integrated systems on my property over the coming years. They gave me the confidence to know where and how to get going and that’s exactly what I needed.”

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a celebration of life. It is a way for us to move forward, supporting ourselves while regenerating the landscape around us.

For ourselves, for future generations.

Permaculture has become, for many, synonymous with sustainable, organic home gardening, working with rather than against nature. Evolving from the original definition of PERMAnent agriCULTURE to PERMAnent CULTURE, permaculture is the harmonious integration of landscapes and people, through the conscious design of a lifestyle which is highly productive and leaves the earth richer than we found it.

By building resilient, regenerative and abundant human-supporting landscapes, permaculture achieves high yields for low energy inputs, while actually building fertility over successive seasons. We search for, design and create thriving ecosystems that celebrate nature’s abundance, providing solutions for every climate, landscape and culture imaginable.

In essence, a design process to meet human needs while enhancing ecosystem health.

We need to create a vision.

We need to change the climate of our minds. We need to rebuild our inner landscapes. We need a positive, solution-focused way of thinking. We need to be inspired, and we have to act. We need to heal ourselves, our landscapes, our relationship with nature and our culture & communities. We need to learn how to reconnect with nature so we can mimic it in the design of our present and our future.

Savour Soil Permaculture provide professional services and expertise in the field of sustainability and environmental design, permaculture education and training. We focus on practical, achievable projects to improve community resilience, increase food security and educate communities.

We work with landowners and renters throughout South East Queensland to cultivate abundant and thriving ecosystems in their own backyard. We teach, train and inspire the next generation of sustainable gardeners through in-person and online permaculture design courses, and encourage everyone to take action today, not just for the present but for the future.
