  • Description


    Professional Visual Artists + Subsistance Organic Gardeners growing our own food.
    We spend as much time at home during spring, summer, autumn as possible to enjoy the lovely produce. We dry and freeze and put away food for the winter. We also make our own wines "FrontBackyard Wines" made from Rhubarb, Plums and Currants.
    We are very active and involved in the local arts scene and curate a local artist residency about 10 minutes away in Harrison Hot Springs.
