Nestled amongst a Eucalyptus forest on 8 acres, owners Megan and Justin Cooke are combining their skills of teaching permaculture and natural earth building to create a Permaculture oasis.
It doesn't matter if you are renting, have a suburban block or acres, come and see ways to live more sustainably and grow some of your own organic food. The property features a ten year old food forest planted on swales, dripping with delicious fruits including olives, bananas, guava, feijoa, fig, mango, citrus and stawberries. No dig gardens and a chop and drop mulching system have improved the soil on this rocky ridge where there is now a productive ecosystem.
