    Ever wondered how cheese was made or always wanted to get hands on kneeding bread dough?

    Elisabeth Fekonia is an award winning, accredited permaculture. 

    “It has been an exciting journey of discovering the lost art of home cheese making, sourdough bread and making wine made of surplus fruit”

    Having been born and raised in Amsterdam, Elisabeth migrated with her family to Australia in 1964 and settled in the suburbs of Brisbane. She claims she didn’t have a country bone in her body growing up but after moving to Queensland, she learned how to spin and knit wool, making her own shoes and clothes… she has fully adopted to the ‘country life’ and she wants to teach others the skills of self reliance in growing and producing their own food.

    Elisabeth set up Permaculture Realfood to educate anyone young or old about organic gardening through various workshops in the Sunshine Coast area. 

    Whether there’ll be a global crisis or not,  being able to produce your own produce is an important life skill especially for our future generation.
