Milkwood is dedicated to teaching and sharing permaculture skills, for living like it matters. We started off as a small family; Kirsten Bradley, Nick Ritar and our kiddo Ashar Fox – we’ve lived all over the place, but have now settled in Southern lutruwita/Tasmania, Australia.

These days, we are a crew of educators, facilitators, designers and doers, and together we teach everything from permaculture design to market gardening, natural building and mushroom cultivation, to help create resilient and abundant households and communities, wherever we can. We do this by providing free online resources & offering world-class training – skills that give you the confidence to create permanently sustainable systems.

We’ve been educating and hosting a wide range of experts from all over for 14 years now – starting in Mudgee NSW on Nick’s family farm. Since then we’ve held courses across NSW, QLD, TAS and VIC in all sorts of awesome skills, from Holistic Management to Beekeeping to Mushroom Growing to Permaculture Design. Students leave our courses ready and able to design & implement a better future for their families, farms and communities. And now, we’re offering online courses too! So you can learn from anywhere, not just Australia. Hooray.
