  • Description


    I have one of the few certified organic community farms in Sandy Beach near Coffs Harbour growing fruit and vegetables. All the produce goes to my family, to my helpers , to Landcare volunteers and other outreach centres.

    I am about to set up growing heirloom veges and Aboriginal bush tucker.
    I make my own fertilizer , recycle water, everything I can to protect and care for our environment.
    Come visit me and my dog , check out the view of the sunrise over the ocean. See the kangaroos, listen to the kookaburra and watch the eagles soar above.
