We are located on the outskirts of Byron Bay, the most easterly point of Australia. The Seed Centre is one acre of Permaculture-inspired bio-diverse subtropical gardens.
In 1998 we commenced the earthworks and planting. We put in 900 perennial plants and constructed nine large raised beds for annual vegetables.
The main orchard is terraced and organised by continent of origin, South and Central America, Mediterranean, Pacific, Central Asia, South and East Asia. There is a large fruity forest with a bush-food trail.
There have been over 5000 visitors to the Seed Centre and fifty-seven interns from fourteen countries.
