    Short Property Description

    The Bog Conservation Area is situated in the beautiful Bungawalbyn catchment. There are 96.5 acres set aside as habitat and there are about 3 acres with home, guest cottage and photographic/film studio. The living area is set up with permaculture principles in mind.  Gardens are near the home and I grow herbs and veggies for food and medicine.

    I have been impacted by the 2019/2020 bushfires and need some help recovering my garden, which has suffered terribly while the fires were in our area. It is a beautiful property, some of my property was burnt, but I am well set up to accommodate WWOOFers, and would love you to help me and my property to to recover and revive.

I know what it’s like when you find a gem of a place off the beaten track and this is one of those places.The property is next to and surrounded by National Parks and State Forests. Only 45 minutes to Evans Head Beach. There is a great entertainment area with camp kitchen for everyone to use and hang out with pool table. One of the favourite features of the property is a quarter acre dam with clean water to swim in.You can check out the property on the properties Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheBogConservationArea

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    I create my own compost and use the no dig method in my gardens using organic principles.

    I use thermal and organic sprays to manage weeds and pest.  Companion planting is done to minimise the need for any pest control.

    Special Conditions

    The 2019/2020 bush fires impacted my property.
