Short Property Description
I know someone who is into bio-dynamic organic farming & he’s going to help me with this new project.
We are going to design & then execute a master plan for the property so it is as self- reliant as possible, we will also be using knowledge from Peter Andrews about how to turn the usually dry seasonal creek bed into a permanent year round water source, we will be doing swales & contouring of the land to slow down the water flow & to hopefully give it year round hydration that won’t require hardly any extra irrigation.
I already had an organic vege garden in town which was great, but the idea is to expand on that.
There is a lake just next door (3-5 min drive and you are at the water’s edge), Mount Glorious Rd is also just 3 minutes away which is also a beautiful area to explore.

Why I became a WWOOF Host
I was originally brought up on a dairy farm in NZ from the age of 0-16, as soon as I got my drivers license I was GONE, off to get a job in the city, well after 18 years of living in the city the country is again calling my name.
Since starting my own small business 8 years ago I don’t need to live in the city anymore. I get by with a couple of trips to the CBD per week and the rest of my work I do from home.
I want to know where my food comes from. This farm will be an experiment for fun.
Open to meeting like minded people that are interested in self sufficient living.
