Community Workshops and Events

Community Workshops


The Crossing is a non-profit community organisation near Bermagui. Our community workshops develop Landcare and Sustainable Design Leadership for schools, youth, universities, and adult groups on our permaculturally-designed property. Bushfire preparedness and fire-retardant design for built and natural environments are key components of our work.

To find free events that support community recovery after the Badja Black Summer Bushfire, please visit our Eventbrite page:

The Crossing runs an annual grafting day for heritage and heirloom fruit trees in mid-August.

for $30 you can learn all about grafting and take home a grafted root stock and scion to plant at home. Additional rootstock ($10) and scion ($5) will be available to purchase on the day. Free for fire-affected people living in temporary accommodation (simply email and advise us which relief/recovery centre your family accessed).

Bookings are essential for all workshops and community events.
