The Food Forrest

Developed by Annemarie and Graham Brookman and their children Tom and Nikki, the Food Forest is a

permaculture farm and learning centre that demonstrates how an ordinary family, with a typical Australian income, can grow its own food and create a productive and diverse landscape.

When the 15-hectare property was purchased in 1983, it was not much more than a bare barley paddock; only a few towering River Red Gums remained along the Gawler River from the time the Kaurna Aboriginal people camped in their shade and gathered food from the land. The heritage-listed homestead was built within the first few years of white settlement of South Australia and much of the fascinating history of the farm can be traced through the stone troughs at which Clydesdale horses drank and implements that once made life easier for the farmers of the day.
