    Description

    Several hectares of forest including a large area of regenerating native forest. We started planting trees in 1988 and the increase in biodiversity as the years go by is beautiful to see. We are still planting trees ( in winter) but most of the work these days is on dealing with the weeds. The biggest weed we have is old man's beard which is a very rapid climbing plant that smothers trees and kills them. We are desperate for more help to control this pest.
    We eat healthy and have a beautiful place to live. Good water and air. Great company. Swimming pool. Local social events. Etc
