    Short Property Description

    We are on 20 acres of pasture and a beautiful rainforest gully which we are regenerating. We have horses, a miniature pony, chickens and a dog. We are 3 adults in the family. We have inherited permaculture features, plants and trees and want to do more. We are undertaking regenerative farming to improve the pasture and capture water. We are 15 minutes from the Sydney-Newcastle railway and back onto a native conservation area with many delightful bushwalks. There is an abundance of birds and wildlife. We have a spare, very comfortable double room in an annexe to a simple country house.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    We avoid chemicals wherever possible, using compost and worm castings on our vegetables, citrus and nut trees. We would like to grow moreĀ  vegetables if we had assistance and aspire to creating a food forest.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    We need some enthusiastic extra pairs of hands to achieve the dreams we have for our property for sustainable living and vegetable and fruit growing. We would love to welcome WWOOFers having been WWOOFers ourselves and perhaps practise our languages (french, german and dutch spoken). We are very lucky to live in a beautiful area and would love others to experience it too.
