Short Property Description

We have a small boat-access only property on the Hawkesbury River, just north of Sydney. We are a couple with an 11  year old daughter, dog, cat, 2 ferrets, 11 chickens, fruit trees, vegetable gardens, herb garden, aquaponics pod, worm farm and beehive. We have solar power and are on rainwater only. We are needing help with building retaining walls, maintaining the gardens, soil improvement, bush regeneration and general maintenance of our property.

Organic/Biological methods we use

As we are in the bush, we aim to manage our fruit and vegetables without chemicals but also without letting the wildlife eat it first. This involves a lot of netting and caging of vegetable gardens to keep wildlife out. We manage our own compost for fertiliser and harvest rainwater for the animals and gardens.
