Spring here. We have new lambs, chicks hatching, vege garden growing madly - busy, busy. Come and join us! On fine days we work outside on landscaping projects, vege gardening, maintaining our little orchard and firewood lot. We have an earth house, compost toilet, 6 sheep and their lambs, 60 chooks and a big gentle sheep dog. We grow our own meat, eggs and many vegetables - happy to host vegetarians. Helpers stay in a large room upstairs within the house - a non-smoking household. Helpers work 5 hours for each night they stay with us. We practice daily waste minimisation and appropriate technology (composting toilet, reed bed, solar dehydrator), propagating fruit trees and chooks. We enjoy working alongside helpers and sharing our knowledge of sustainability. Most helpers stay 1 - 2 weeks.
