Macedon Ranges Permaculture is a small mixed business located in the Macedon Ranges, with a global view. Owned and operated by Bushy (Ben Bush), the business aims to assist people to live more sustainably by providing for their needs as much as they can within their household, and expanding outward to their street, neighborhood, town and region. I believe, that if we can provide more of our basic needs in a satisfying and meaningful way then it discourages us as individuals and as members of communities from supporting or participating in ecologically damaging and socially irresponsible activities.

Macedon Ranges Permaculture offers a variety of skills and information based services to empower people, increase (and embrace) their talents, and help facilitate community building by introducing like (and unlike) minded people to one another.
