Winter in the forest is the time to prepare lots firebreaks along our many kms of forest trails before bushfire season arrives in early spring!!
Both Dave and I are Zoologists and keen bird watcher/naturalists,loving to guide you through the rainforest,creeks and fantastic sculptured cascades of the Doyles River (which wraps around our 1000 wild acres and drops over 200m in 2kms).
The winter vegie crops are in & we are harvesting passionfruit,pepinos,tamarillos,citrus,broccoli, asian greens,red peppers,rocket, sweet potato, lettuce and herbs for our everyday lunchtime salads.Also cooking pumpkin fruit cakes and lime marmalade and lots more on the wood stove for warm winter treats.
The pantry of tasty preserves is well stocked and the olives,walnuts,chestnuts macadamia nuts and bamboo shoots are mostly in now. We`re raking cut grass for mulch and compost; clearing the forest firebreak trails of sticks and stray lantana seedlings following on from the major Landcare work of a few months ago; and we are keen to lay out and begin constructing some new walking and e-bike trails and o'night shelters for forest visitors.
Our local community is actively transitioning to a resilient future beyond fossil fuels and projects like the "Oxygen Farm",Community Health Centre and Old Sawmill regeneratation (where we are tackling pioneer planted privet) are also part of our experience for you. You will be genuinely appreciated here. We are "off-grid" on solar power with satelite internet and WiFi available.Long stays welcomed.
