I ve been involved in permaculture since my 20s in some expression or another. Ive always been organic and planted companion planting. Ive also always wanted my own 100 plus acres which Ive now been privileged enough to be living on the property by 2012..Presently Ive managed to go there a few times and set up a sea container comfy place with solar and wind power. so um a tenth of the way there lol. lots still to do.
I speak french, am trying to learn thai and have built out of mudbrick, rammed earh, stone, sea containers, glass bottles too.
Ive learnt everything through trial and error not through courses.Mainly learning from others and practice.. as they say practice and knowledge handed down , can make a big difference,
We are WWoofing hosts also .
I have no qualms in setting the farm up as a community , one with likeminded people who all help each other and work together equally.
earthworks with a 31 tonner and a great excavator man
and the Lockyer valley area
after 404 mill of rain the swales worked a dream
after a few weeks of hard physical work and much planning
the beginnings of the gatton demonstration farm
income projects, setting up a local community group
Since we decided to build the first place with sea containers
for myself, bees and koalas too
As it is the only road access to the top of the hill I have devised a plan
The aim is to use only wind, solar and other alternative power to generate the whole farm and everything used on it
A place for visitors to stay when they come visit
