Short Property Description

The Western District coastline of Victoria is where we have our 30 acres, with 5 acres of native bush. We have visiting native animal such as koalas, kangaroos and plenty of birds. It is only a short drive to the seaside town of Portland.

We use rainwater for everything and so planting with this in mind is very important. All that we are creating and building here is a wonderful learning and therapy experience. We would love you to join in with us as we try to create a place for all to enjoy even in our small way.

Organic/Biological methods we use

I would say our block is as organic as we can make it and follows what we love about permaculture farming and we are all learning together. We try our best to make use of what the land and animals give us and waste very little of it.

Organic fertilizers are used on the larger paddocks now as no chemicals have been put on them over the past 15 years so we are excited to see what will come about from this.

Why I became a WWOOF Host

I needed help on the property which was one of the reasons I became a WWOOF host and the thought of meeting people from all walks of life sounded good to me.

So now I can honestly say, I wish I had done this so much earlier. It is such a giving experience by both the hosts and the WWOOFers. We learn so much from each other and I can see my self doing this for many years to come.
