We are remotely situated in a exquisite valley high in the Cradle region of north, west Tasmania. Lorinna, the community, which we belong to is a progressive (though non-intentional) demographic of off-the-grid gardeners focused on sustainability and community resilience. We are in the early stages of setting up a village revitalisation project that is attached to our eco accommodation. Our vision is that this will contribute to economic localisation and development in the valley. We are a family of four and welcome other families (as well as singles/couples) to share our journey.
This spring/summer we are drawing on techniques from both syntropic gardening and permaculture to food forest our small orchard. We will continue work on ecological restoration for the rest of the property. Our wwoofer's cabin will undergo some more renovations, and possibly we will be doing some natural building using local materials.

Visitors will experience living in strong community circumstance that is focused on sustainability. Within this framework, our family is exploring concepts of village revitalisation, neo peasantism, compassionate communication (including growing children without normalised violence as a source of entertainment and pleasure) and interbeing. We are an Australian/Indonesian family and being with us offers access to both worlds with possibilities open to also volunteering at our home in Indonesia.

We have a helpers cabin, a studio and spare rooms available.

About the place, a wild valley surrounded by majestic mountains, with a marvelous lake where to cool off after a hot summer day. A great place to switch off and forget
