Fair Harvest Permaculture

Fair Harvest is an established permaculture farm 5km out of Margaret River in Australia’s beautiful South West corner.

For over 20 years the property at the corner of Carters Rd and Burnside Rd Margaret River has been home to Permaculture in Margaret River.

The journey started in 1995 when Jodie and friends moved to the corner of the family property and started planting trees, at that stage, the farmhouse, machinery shed (now Fair Harvest Venue) and the old barn stood in bare paddocks and were constantly buffeted by the weather.

While involved in community living and environmental activism the group started planting windbreaks, timber trees fruit trees, and vegetable gardens. Structures went up for animal housing, woodsheds, garden sheds, orchard netting, and poultry.

During this time Jodie started teaching Permaculture and groups frequently visited the property. Community living and growing continued on the farm until 2006.  In 2009 Dorothee arrived at the farm as a WWOOFER and before long had teamed up with Jodie to make the formidable team that now run Fair Harvest Permaculture.

In 2012 the old machinery shed was cleverly redesigned and renovated as a venue for courses and events as well as housing a commercial kitchen for dealing with the increasing volume of food coming from the gardens.

Since then Fair Harvest has run numerous courses including the popular South West Permaculture Design Certificate. It has hosted music events, weddings, and private functions and has opened its gates on a regular basis for freshly prepared organic lunches.

More recently Jodie and Dorothee have turned their hand to holistic, broad acre farm management, using cell grazing to improve soil and pasture on the farm.

Fair Harvest founders Jodie and Do are passionate food growers.
