    Short Property Description

    A rugged and wild property with 365 degree views of nothing but wilderness. Perched in on a ridge at about 300 and flanked by thousands of acres of national parks and state forest. It can be extreme, windy, dry, hot….yet also we a regularly flooded in by calamitous rains. The bird life here is literally off the scale, and the diversity of flora and topography something very special. I run a small plant propagation nursery and sales are predominantly made through various regional farmers markets and fairs. The property is also covered in food gardens and living plant collections.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    I follow a regime which might be called ‘beyond’ organic; I try to work with my land and environment as opposed to fighting it to make things happen. Thus the house gardens, even those which are comercial are very wild and freeform, there are elements of permaculture, perennial agriculture and tradtional old school plant husbandry.

    The nursery production side is also run under similar principals, and part of my plan for the future involves moving even further towards a slower, more sustainable traditional plant nursery which will soon be open to the public for sales, learning and workshops.

    Vollies will learn all about plants and how to grow and propagate them, they will have a diverse daily work schedule, and while sure there will be times when menial and tough laborious tasks have to happen but I aim to ensure people feel like they go away having gained applied skills and knowledge.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    I hope to give interested people the opportunity to experience living and working in the bush, learn about the native flora and fauna, gain meaningful skills in plant propagation, botany and horticulture. I also have a number of projects in the wings for which assistance is greatly needed!
