    Permaculture

    Short Property Description

    In the upper reaches of the beautiful Preston valley, 40 km east of Donnybrook. Thirty five year old plus Permaculture based edible landscape.  Nestled alongside the Noggerup Brook among tall trees and prolific birdlife. Quiet, shady and peaceful. Separate accomodation with couple of choices. Shops are 30 minutes away so do bring the essentials and things you can’t live without if no transport. Phone signal here but not the greatest at times. Access online (satellite) via WiFi. Any questions feel free to email.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    “Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is the harmonious integration of landscape and people, providing their food, energy, shelter and other material/non-material needs in a sustainable way. The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation, rather than protracted and thoughtless action.It is the concious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive eco-systems which have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural eco-systems.” Bill Moliison: Permaculture – A Designer’s Manual.

    Am not bound by ideology relating to food production. Or anything for that matter. I consider myself to be curious, considerate, observant and resourceful. Try to apply at least some of that to most aspects of living and what I undertake here. Quite fond of my birds and wildlife and do what I can to make them feel part of the system. Most of them at least!
