We are located on 5 acres north of Sydney in the Hills District about 15 minutes through the Galston Gorge to Hornsby Railway Station. I can pick you up and drop you off there, it's about 1 hour to the city by train. I have an organic vegetable garden and some fruit trees, but would like to really build up my soil and try biodynamic techniques like my grandfather did. I am also interested in cooking and wellness so lots of herbs and aromatherapy. I can't walk so good these days so need some support. If you would like to join us, we would make you feel welcome. I intent to eat out of the vegetable garden and grow interesting Australian native plants as medicine. I'm new to organics but are keen to learn and look forward to an exchange of knowledge, experience, good food and good times. I'm easy going and have a huge library of interesting books on art and history. I'm always fascinated by people from other countries and their customs and food. I look forward to meeting nice people. My daughter WWOOFed around decades ago and her stories are still with me, some good, some not so good, so I am excited to find this website and be part of a caring community. Most of the property is bush, a valley, and there are lots of walks and history in the area, especially in the Berowra National Park and Hawkesbury River. It's a nice place to relax, read a book, and cook scrumptious meals. I'm not a commercial enterprise, just trying to learn and grow amazing heritage and native plants. I'm an artist, so sometimes I just grow veggies to paint pictures of! I'm sure we will see what happens, but my daughter loved the people and I love their integrity and passion for nutritious food.

City/Town: Kangaroo Island
Accommodation Type: In Our Home, Caravan, Tent, BYO Accommodation
Nine Planets lies at the end of the Chapman River Sanctuary adjacent Lashmar's Lagoon Sanctuary and about 600 meters from Antechamber Bay, one of the largest, most pristine and undisturbed beaches on Kangaroo Island's coast. The Chapman River teams with bream and the beach is a sanctuary for endangered hooded plovers which nest in the sand just above the high water line in late spring. Garfish, tommies, flathead and mullet can be caught from the beach if you are adept at shore fishing. Lashmar's Lagoon is a sanctuary for waterbirds and teems with black swans, ducks, pelicans, sacred ibis and other birds. In winter and spring black swans grazing in pasture adjacent the lagoon outnumber farmers' sheep. Kangaroos, wallabies and goannas usually visit daily and dozens of bird species including magpies, currawongs, superb fairywrens, honeyeaters, thornbills, red browed finches and silver eyes call in for a drink and/or bath, whilst wedge tailed eagles and the very rare white bellied sea eagle may be seen soaring overhead. At night the calls of boobook owls can be heard in the distance. It is often windy, but rarely very hot or very cold.
