    Beschreibung

    Our family reside at Solar Village, Humpty Doo, 35 km from the tropical city of Darwin. We live on a sustainable bush block that is a citizen science experiment and we keep the bush in pristine condition and are building a legacy library. Solar Village began in 1980 with members choosing to live 'off grid', experimenting with new independent technologies and co-inhabiting a 320 acres of bushland. It is set in the citizen science project of a fire exclusion zone within the highly flammable landscape of the top end savanna with the last of the annuals fires ceasing 1979. As a result many rare plant and animal species have returned and are now flourishing and it serves as an important ongoing experiment in sound ecological landscape management.
    We have a seasonal creek and spring, jungle, tropical woodland and a floodplain with rare small mammals and birds as we have kept the bush block fire and stock free there have been a number of ecological studies undertaken here and currently we have a nest box and camera trapping project. There are great opportunities for bush walking, bird watching, spot lighting, bike riding and on the flood plain cooking around the fire and moon and star gazing.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We live in Northern Australia's most successful fire exclusion project and it is an example of pristine Australia Savanna. Have extensive knowledge of local ecology and the different environments and travel to work and visit out bush regularly. The library has a collection of writing and books that focus on the local knowledge, culture and the environment. Events and workshops take place at the library and on the flood plain. We live a healthy outdoors lifestyle regularly going on bush walks, fishing swimming. We go to Darwin town often on weekends for markets and events. Love hosting visitors from near and far, cooking on fires with local food.
