Yes I spend a lot of time at the garden, building up the soil and
encouraging a permaculture situation - the animals we have are alpacas
they are great on the Australian soils as their feet are not hooved, so
they don't break the soil down, I use the fleece and am a professional
dye maker, so the fleece gets blended with silk and dyed,
We have an orchard that is producing fruit and also herbs and flowers
round the houses.
Out toilet systems in the three main houses are all waterless, and we
focus on water conservation issue. We have many species of frogs here,
they live all over the place and turn up inside as well.
We have guests stay regularly in the guest house and I facilitate
textile workshops. Some of the guests come to see how a waterless
toilet works as we are very dry in Australia, however toilet technology
os all water waste system based. People come to give their children a
non consumer type holiday just being in the country feeding the free
range chickens and having fresh air.
