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.

The property features a ten year old food forest planted on swales, dripping with delicious sub tropical fruits including olives, bananas, guava, feijoa, fig, mango, citrus and stawberries. A chook tractoring system, 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. Happy chickens freerange in a fox proof chook house reusing an old caravan. Starting with zone 0 the house has been developed over the last 10 years with design features of rammed earth, light earth and mud brick, solar passive home including an on site grey water treatment system, solar panels and even home grown bench tops!
