    Short Property Description

    ***PLEASE NOTE***

    Due to Covid19 and resulting food shortages & travel restrictions in our area, we are unable to host at present. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you find an alternate opportunity.

    ***********************

    We are on 8 acres of natural bush in the Margaret River Region of Western Australia. We live and work in a 3/4 acre clearing, where we produce organic fruit, vegetables and medicinal herbs. We sell the plants we grow, in addition to our seeds and organic herbal capsules. Our property hosts a number of rare and endangered Australian native animals, and thousands of native Australian Grass Trees. We are located in the heart of the Margaret River Region, famous for it’s surfing, wineries, and natural beauty.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    When it comes to our food, and our seeds, we want the best, and purest. We also lean heavily toward sourcing and growing large numbers of heirloom varieties. The basis for all the soil we use is straight from the ground beneath us. This is combined with selected organic manure, blood & bone, coir peet and mulch. We only ever use organic pesticides, and only in exceptional circumstances. Our preference is to monitor our plants and manually remove pests. Most insects that we have difficulty with are seasonal, so we know what to look for and when, and simply check plants and squash the offenders. All irrigation is rainwater and dam water, therefore completely chemical free.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    There is so much more work here than my husband and I are able to do alone. Our business is expanding, and we need help, but we are so passionate about what we do that we’d love to share it with people with the same passion as us. We are in a beautiful location, which is also a major tourist destination. So why not share the full experience of this region whilst also getting ahead with some of the incredible plans we have for our home and business. We hope you will take with you some new knowledge and great memories of your stay with us.
