Living Smart Busselton 2023

community sustainability course

2 May - 6 June at Busselton Community Resource Centre

Facilitated by Laura Bailey, hosted by the City of Busselton

Join us & discover ways to live well, with a lighter footprint on our planet.  We'll explore 1001 ways to create a resilient & connected lifestyle.  

Living Smart is a holistic seven-session sustainability course for adults (16+). We will give you resources to create your own ‘new normal’ via hands-on practical activities, presentations, demos, guest speakers & a field trip.


Topics include how to: grow delicious food, reduce our power & water bills, use renewable energy, live with less waste, create fabulous compost, make our own chemical-free household cleaners & how to be a part of positive change within our community.


It's a fantastic opportunity to meet & share ideas with others, and learn new ways to save your money and our environment at the same.


“Attending this course enabled me to deepen my knowledge about sustainability, provided local & relevant information, & gave me the opportunity to meet like-minded people in my immediate community. It was a lovely balance of learning, fun & connection.” LS participant

The course will be facilitated by Laura Bailey of Margaret River Organic Farmer, an experienced sustainability educator with a background in renewables, energy assessing, permaculture, homesteading & regenerative farming.


Hosted by the City of Busselton, this course runs over 7 sessions from 5:30-8pm Tuesday 2 May to Tuesday 6 June (with a field trip over the weekend of 27-28 May). Thanks to funding, the only cost to you for the 7 sessions is $80 + booking fees. That's over 17 hours of positive connections & practical workshop time; what a bargain!  Please book early to avoid disappointment. Our popular Living Smart courses always sell out, so book your place today & tell your friends, family, neighbours & colleagues.

More information is available at or feel free to email Laura at if you have specific queries.



Private farm tours & school tours

Exclusive paddock-to-plate tours of our regenerative farm, tailored to your interests, can be arranged in advance directly with us.  Visitors will receive a warm welcome from our farmily and a unique, real experience on a genuine working farm where we make our living from the food we grow (we're not a showy tourist venue or a hobby farm)! 

Meet the animals and the farmers: Lawson, a fourth generation primary producer, or Laura, an experienced environmental educator (or both at your request if we're available!), will  share with you the heart and soul of our organic farming practices and principles. 

We explore a different perspective of protein farming through customised on-ground walking tours (whatever the weather!), with lots of time for questions and discussion.  The tour ends in our farm shop where we can enjoy a cup of organic tea or coffee and you can buy our produce.  Further organic refreshments and workshops on a range of food, farming, permaculture and sustainability topics are also available for advance bookings.

Suitable for anyone interested in whole food and ecological agriculture: individuals, families, students, schools, special interest education groups, community groups, corporate excursions or conference outings (minimum 2 people, maximum negotiable).  Please just give us plenty of notice to ensure your dates are available.  We look forward to welcoming you soon!
