  • Description

    Description

    Our family resides at Solar Village, Humpty Doo, 35 km from the tropical city of Darwin. We live on a sustainable bush block that is a citizen science experiment and we keep the bush in pristine condition and are building a legacy library. Solar Village began in 1980 with members choosing to live 'off grid', experimenting with new independent technologies, and co-inhabiting 320 acres of bushland. It is set in the citizen science project of a fire exclusion zone within the highly flammable landscape of the top-end savanna with the last of the annuals fires ceasing 1979. As a result, many rare plant and animal species have returned and are now flourishing and it serves as an important ongoing experiment in sound ecological landscape management.
    We have a seasonal creek and spring, jungle, tropical woodland, and a floodplain with rare small mammals and birds as we have kept the bush block fire and stock free there have been a number of ecological studies undertaken here and currently, we have a nest box and camera trapping project. There are great opportunities for bushwalking, bird watching, spotlighting, bike riding and on the flood plain cooking around the fire and moon and star gazing.
    Our lives are a little busy at present, so helpers will need to be pretty self-reliant and able to work out what to do next. The work may be a variety of things, from weeding to building, to domestic work, to a bit of help with the kids.

    We look forward to meeting you!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live in Northern Australia's most successful fire exclusion project and it is an example of pristine Australia Savanna. Have extensive knowledge of local ecology and the different environments and travel to work and visit out bush regularly. The library has a collection of writing and books that focus on the local knowledge, culture and the environment. Events and workshops take place at the library and on the flood plain. We live a healthy outdoors lifestyle regularly going on bush walks, fishing, swimming preparing meals and foods for staorage. We go to Darwin town often on weekends for markets and events. Love hosting visitors from near and far, cooking on fires with local food.
