Since 2009 we have been practising natural living. Our actions and activities focus on establishing and refining an enjoyable and meaningful existence that works in harmony with natural systems.

Motivated by the converging problems of environmental degradation, over population, peak oil and climate change, we employ permaculture principals and philosophies to develop resilient living systems with a focus on biological environmental restoration, food production and living in balance with nature.

Topics covered:
  • Food forest gardening - nature inspired food production with integrated water harvesting and irrigation
  • Various solar and wood hot water heating systems
  • Heating and cooking with wood
  • Tiny houses and basic composting toilets
  • Solar electric backup
  • Encounter chickens, ducks and kune kune pigs that live in the forest garden


Stay both friday and saturday night in our eco-cabin for a total of $240 and get the in-depth experience.
