I have lived on the land here since 1980 and have built extensive gardens and raised 3 children who are now grown. I help manage the " farm" with my exhusband David and friend Warren who visits regularly. We are open minded, social, musical people and lend our support to current peaceful actions around critical environmental issues and projects in our local region and beyond. We love having energetic and creative visitors in, to share our abundance of stimulating experience.
