We are a beginning co-operative village, set in the beautiful hills near Warwick, Queensland. The 70 acre farm is in a private location 20 mins drive from the 2 bedroom accommodation in the rural village of Maryvale.

3/4 of the farm property is treed, and these trees are protected. Our aim is to grow fruit trees and to create a large food forest to support several families and guests. We want to produce many different products ranging from mushrooms and aquaponically grown vegetables to art, crafts and workshop items.

We currently have guinea fowl keets growing (pictured). Wildlife on our property includes an abundance of birds, cicadas, grasshoppers and crickets, and wallabies are often seen in the morning and afternoon. Neighbouring farms have cattle but we do not.

We have a market tent and food van which we intend to use to sell crafts and home grown vegetarian, healthy, ready to eat food.

The farm is at its beginning stages: we need help fixing fences, planting trees, building earth ships, renovating and maintaining the backpackers quarters and food van, mechanical repairs on our musicians bus, mowing, building paths, murals, outdoor facilities such as benches, tables, bush kitchen, etc, and other creative ideas you can suggest to us.

This farm is a cooperative vision and effort to build a self sustaining village. All religions and cultures welcome.
