Sharon, the great site you are describing exists in a form in Melbourne,

CERES (centre for education and research into environmental stategies) is a
reclaimed site over an old landfill on the edge of the Merrri Creek and is
over 30 years old. It has woodlots, food forest, café, permaculture market
garden, organic nursery, retrofitted eco-house (which is lived in but open
for visitors on Sundays), individual plots, ponds, solar and wind farm,
houses a bicycle recycling/reusing business, a worm-farm building business,
a breadmaking collective and about 3 lovely free-standing woodfired ovens
around the site, and also a world village which is run by teachers from
Indonesia, India, Maori (new zealand), Aboriginal, and Africa, each
countries part of the village reflects in plants and architecture and
activities charicteristics of that part of the world, and over 1000 school
kiddies pass through each week in different learning modules. There is also
a number of environmental education teachers who take ecology classes of all
sorts. On the tertiary side of things there is a 3 year certificate in
horticulture, one in bush foods, a permaculture course. In summer there are
evening music concerts and two festivals/year.
