We have been growing certified organic Medicinal Herbs for 25 years producing herbal teas and skin care products. Growing our own food is very important to as and we grow most of our veggies, and grain. We have our own orchards going. We have a lot of Native forest and do all our building using timber which we produce on our portable sawmill from our forest. We have spring water coming out of the ground near our house and a dam for summer swimming.
We have an interest in yoga and meditation.
Our area is very beautiful with mountains, rainforest, wildlife and abundant bush walking to be done all around us. We are away from everybody with no neighbours, surrounded by Nature.
We offer a morning yoga class before breakfast and meditation in the evening for anybody interested.
We have 6 children with 1 still with us at home. Our lifestyle is simple and close to Nature and our home rustic with an outside composting toilet. Accommodation is in either cabins or a bus. We are vegetarians and eat whole food using fire for all our cooking and heating, solar panels also produce electricity and hot water although we are connected to the grid.
Working here involves mostly work with the herb and veggie gardens although building and other work is ongoing. The exchange here is 5 and 1/2 hours per day, 6 days per week. We are situated at 650 metres altitude.
