I grew up in the country, around Canungra nad Beaudesert - before it became crowded. After a period of moving around we settled in the Canberra region. I've always wanted a farm, my wife has horses and so four years ago we purchased a property at Bredbo.
My interest in permacultuire comes from living in a temperate brittle environment, it's said it's the hardest place to farm in Australia. I'm interested in Natural Sequence Farming, Biodynamics and Holistic Management - Permaculture, being inclusive seemed the way to go.
So we run pigs and are trying to build a permaculture system based on them, it's hard - pigs are good critters but they have their own ideas.
Begun Teaching on my first PDC
