Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to the SHEAF Blog.

Despite our best intentions, we're not great at keeping this blog updated with our latest happenings. We are, however, definitely an active group, meeting at least once each week during term time.

If you'd like to make contact with Dunedin home educators, our contact details are in the column, below right.

We send out a weekly email newsletter with details of upcoming events, courses, gatherings etc.

You can also find us on Facebook (page is visible whether you're a facebook user or not)

Have a look through this blog to see the types of events we have organised in the past. You'll also find links to other blogs and articles that we find useful or informative, on the off-chance that you'll appreciate them too :~) (Look for these more general blog-posts under the label "Weekend Reading")

If you're not currently on our email list and would like to contact us, please email us at the address you can see in the column on the right. We'd love to hear from you!

Permaculture gardening class(es)

Note: Since there are so many people who want to do this class Rory has decided to do two classes, one on Wednesday and one on Thursday. Please tell me (Ted) what one you would rather. Also feel free to send this around the christian homeschool group.

First session will be Wed 22nd Aug

Hi Everyone,

Ted here. A friend of ours, Rory, who is a keen gardener and permaculturist, has said he is interested in sharing some of his knowledge with those who are interested. What we were thinking is that each term we could get together for a few hours and learn about what that season has to offer for our gardens.

Possible topics (depending on the season) are;

-Discussing garden design and strategies (forest gardening, stacking plants, multiple functions, mineral accumulators, no till etc.)
-Developing a template of family property to help sketch up garden ideas
-Learning how to take cuttings (to take home)
-Raising seeds in trays (to take home)
-Harvesting whatever is around
-and much more

We would meet at Rory's house where he has some very cool gardens or another location of his choice. All will be welcome and everyone will get something out of it. Thanks, Ted

If anyone is interested in this then please e-mail Ted
