THE MARKET GARDEN
Regenerative Biodynamic Permaculture
PERMACULTURE X BIODYNAMICS
Purple Pear Harvest embodies the Permaculture ethics of Earth Care, People Care & Fair Share, as well as Biodynamic growing practices rooted in ancient agricultural knowledge. The Mandala Market Garden is an integrated system that incorporates the 12 Permaculture Principles and utilises BD preparations in the rich compost. All produce is grown in a regenerative manner and is absolutely chemical free - good for you and good for the earth. Our eggs are from happy hens that live in the garden, eating our weeds and adding manure to our living soil.
ABOUT YOUR FARMER
Shaynah started Purple Pear Harvest after her Permaculture Design Course (PDC) and Internship at Purple Pear Farm. She and a small team of passionate volunteers are committed to continuing the legacy of farm owners Kate and Mark under their invaluable mentorship, and honouring the land on which the farm sits. Shaynah acknowledges the traditional custodians of this land, the Wonnarua people, and gives respect to their elders past, present and emerging.
COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE (CSA)
"Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a model of food production and distribution that directly connects farmers and eaters...Being part of CSA is a way for eaters to share with the farmer the costs and risks of farming as well as the bounty." - Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance
How does it work?
Purple Pear Harvest offers a traditional CSA membership, for which you pay up-front each season for the best value, as well as an alternative week-to-week subscription option and the flexible option to buy individual boxes without the locked-in commitment.
