We live on 15 acres in the hills overlooking the Huon River. Our property features many practical examples of permaculture design including swales and food forests. We also have a solar passive home, large vegetable garden, mixed fruit orchard, young hazelnut orchard, pastured chicken egg enterprise and sheep, ducks and goats. I am passionate about regenerative agriculture and am working towards setting up a small scale demonstration farm to share with others. We are also building tiny houses on trailers to diversify our income. Living on a property that is beautiful and harmonious is important to us, especially when it is both our workplace and our home.

We love sharing our simple lifestle with others and if desired, share our knowldege on permaculture at a farm level. We also love to hear of your lives and experience and to learn from you.
Help is needed to plant and harvest vegetables and fruit, feeding hens and collecting eggs, planting fruit trees and food forest plants, fencing, building 2 very small bridges, fitting out (insulating and lining) a new volunteer accommodation bus, mulching orchards......painting cool designs on the buses!
Helpers sleep in a large and clean bus, or the house depending on the weather and volunteer numbers. We eat meals together at the house. We have a mixed diet (some of us eat meat, some don't).
The Huon River is only a km away. It is a great river for swimming, kayaking and rowing. There are lovely bushwalks around us. There are buses to Hobart and to the south very close by.
