Here is an introduction to Echoes in the Valley
We are in the beginnings of setting up the Gatton demonstration farm and plan on teaching the locals and interested bodies ,a different concept that includes living a sustainable existence and which does not include burning off every year.
Echoes in the Valley is a 160 acres situated on the side of a mountain or 2 and facing the Darling ranges 17 kilometres from Gatton, Queensland.
The weather here is warm temperate to subtropical and everything just seems to grow on its own as long as there is some water about...(I remember once putting in a passionfruit vine which was left as we could not be on the farm to return and see an enormous vine in its place.)
Our land is rehabilitated land from overgrazing (usual story) but after having been left to spell for 5 years (with the neighbours cows frequenting it on occasion to graze grass down and add some lovely nitrogen paddies) it now has many acacias ( legume trees )and pioneer species of brigalow through regeneration and a long list of many other species discovered and recorded by Land for Wildlife when they came and perused the property to assess it for approval (which we now have) as there is a wide range of wildlife and pioneer species of plants.
