  • Description

    Description

    Live on a large intentional community on mid north coast of NSW in Australia.
    Produce enough organic greens for me and friends plus many tropical fruits and some indigenous fruit and nut trees.
    Have been here nearly 30 yrs living a natural and healthy lifestyle in home made of local timber stone and some mud brick.
    Have had many young helpers over the years and love the exchange and input I receive and they likewise appreciate the knowledge and experience of someone who has lived the lifestyle that some of them aspire to.
    The community is diverse and interesting situated on the coast and surrounded by National Park.
