Hi there Helpers. Would you like to join us to learn Permaculture in a huge garden of Earthly delights here in lovely Nannup? We've been growing this Food forest for 34 years and make our living from farmers markets so are very busy gardening, making compost, saving seeds, packing eggs, feeding and caring for animals, (about 10 pigs and 50 chooks), also we cell graze sheep, chooks, alpacas, geese, beef and dairy cows. We are always planting seeds and seedlings, trees and tubers. We mulch, weed water and protect them then hopefully we harvest lots of animal products, fruit and vegetables then eat them or sell them. We travel an hour to the MArgaret River farmers market nearly every Saturday. We also make a 3 hour trip to Perth city farm markets once a month, and we can pick you up from there if you like.
Alternatively you can catch a bus ( SouthWest Coachlines or TransWA) to Nannup, we can pick you up from the bus stop with a few days notice.
We also teach permaculture here on the banks of the Blackwood River and beyond. Ecosystems don't operate without animals, and we are not vegetarians. I am really sorry but vegetarian and vegan diets are impossible for us to cater for.We hunt and eat the feral pigs which are degrading landscape. Sorry we CAN NOT sign visa forms and we take smokers only if they are fantastic workers and go off the property to smoke. We eat very much from our land to avoid reliance on chemical companies and packaging and to enjoy good health. By now we have at least 90 different types of fruit and nut tree growing. The animals do their carbon sequestration thing and help us grow bamboo, trees and veges. With solar power and rainwater, wood stove to back up solar hot water,and cooking on biogas sometimes, we invite you to assist and learn from us the many skills involved to live lightly on earth... for as long as we both enjoy. We need help to enhance this demo site which has renewable energy, worm farms,
swales, bamboo chicken tractors etc. Accommodation in hand built mudbrick home where you would have your own bedroom and share a bathroom with one or 2 other help X ers. This will suit someone keen to learn about soil regeneration to reverse climate change. If you are able to contribute meaningfully please apply but if unwell (ie not mentally and physically fit & willing atm) please don't waste our time and yours.Sorry indeed but our time is limited and we need help here. People suffering but still able to contribute 6 hours a day say tree planting are very welcome. We certainly hope our organic meat based diet, fresh air pure water etc will help you.
