What we do
We bring people from all walks of life together with volunteers from the local community to grow organic food in a way that is sustainable and supportive of the local ecosystem. We do this by applying the principles of permanent agriculture (permaculture). Permaculture is guided by the ethics of people care, earth care and a fair share for all beings.
We are building a nurturing and supportive growing community that we have opened up to the local refugee and migrant community. We offer a safe welcoming space to anyone where they can meet new people, forge new friendships and share their skills, stories and ideas.
We are always expanding our offering to include other opportunities to help people not just to stay healthy but to live energised vital lives, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. The focus is always to help deepen our connections with our bodies, thoughts and emotions, to dwell fully in the present moment and recognize the value of our connection to each other and our entire ecosystem. This paradigm shift in our awareness of interbeing is the foundation from which we can build a truly sustainable way of being on this earth.
