Discover the unique offering at this Port Stephens based farm and farmgate
Keen to get your hands dirty? Maybe you’re an avid at-home preserver? Interested in learning about permaculture? Or just need to pick up some local produce whilst driving through?
Drop by In Our Hands Family Farm in Seaham and book an upcoming workshop or browse their Farmgate which is open daily.
With the owner, Jacqui Purcell at the helm, this Port Stephens local business has been continually changing the local permaculture landscape since its inception in 2019.
Guests are invited onto the grounds and into the home of Jacqui and her family to learn all about what goes on at In Our Hands Family Farm and be a part of the overall process. From learning permaculture preserving techniques, joining in on the day-to-day farm operations, discovering school holiday workshops, and browsing their farmgate, there’s always something fresh to explore.
Learn three to four different techniques and preserve only what’s in season and abundant. Every workshop is a completely different and fresh experience and depends on what is available. Upcoming dates can be found on their Instagram here and Facebook here.
This free offering welcomes keen individuals to come help in the garden for the day through harvesting and minor maintenance chores. Bring your own gloves, boots, and hat. You’ll also have the opportunity to gather cuttings that you might like to add to your own home garden, and at the end of the day, you’ll be able to enjoy and share in the harvest of produce. For upcoming dates, head to their Instagram here and Facebook here.
