My friend and I stayed 2-weeks with Jill in Goongerah in September 2021. (https://wwoof.com.au/members/vz033/) We worked from a task list which included reducing fire risk around the house and shed, raking leaves and sticks, collecting and stacking firewood, and mulching fruit trees. We also prepared garden beds for summer crops; weeded, added compost and manure, sowed seeds, and transplanted seedlings. We loved hanging out with the animal friends living there; goats, horses, geese, doves, chooks and dogs. We could hear the river running and frogs chirping through the night, slept so well! The scenery and forest surrounding Jill’s property is stunning, we saw a lot of Spring wildflowers and hiked 2 walks nearby with 600-year old trees in rainforests. I am concerned how 80% of the Errinunda forest was burnt and there are not enough places for wildlife to live easily due to logging in the area. The logging also increases bushfire risk to the properties and rainforests in this beautiful part of our world really should be protected.
