Milkwood Farm (1)
Milkwood is a small organic family farm near Mudgee in Central Western NSW. A Permaculture Demonstration Farm currently under development, Milkwood features extensive permaculture earthworks and water-harvesting features, our amazing passive-solar cottage, food-forests in the making, seedball production and many other examples of sustainable and regenerative best-practice for farming and living.
Our courses are held in our family's woolshed with beautiful views of Campbells Creek Valley and our organic farm cooking is such that students often joke about moving in permanently.
Mudgee is an easy 4 hours by car or 40 minutes by air from Sydney, and is serviced by Countrylink Rail and Mudgee Airport. See our Getting to Milkwood page for a map and full details on getting here by plane, train or automobile.
- For this course, we offer the option to stay at Milkwood Farm in our creekside camping area as part of your course cost. This option includes dinner, breakfast and use of all amenities, and is BYO camping gear (or hire some of our tents/beds/sleeping bags by contacting us prior to your course). See our Staying at Milkwood page for more details on what we provide.
Or, if you're not up for camping, we suggest...
- Staying at Bushlands Holiday Park in Windeyer, 15 minutes up the road. Bushlands has a range of cabin and camping options, and the Windeyer Pub, located right next door, does counter meals some nights of the week.

Prior to attending your course, you might like to take a look at our ever-expanding reading list,a bunch of recommended and practical texts on Permaculture, sustainable agriculture and community resilience.
None of these texts are pre-requisite for our courses, we just like to
be able to provide suggestions on background reading, in case you're
champing at the bit to get going.
