Hi All While this is not my own property I am heavily involved with it's set up and development. The idea is to develop a new income producing system based on sustainable organic permaculture systems and developing a new business which will sustain the two families living on the site. The two areas currently under development are; 1. A dam connected swale zone for the development of a food forest producing family and excess tradable food. 2. A home based business producing boutique soil improver's including biochar made using my Bazman Rumbler Gasifiers. This starting ground work has just been completed (10/2014) I hope to bring you more of this project as it develops. The below link to my blog hosts a slide show of the project. https://www.biochar.net/the-earth-haven-project/ The dam connected five swale system over the roughly 3000m2 North/East facing slope was completed using a common farm tractor, grader blade, ripper, dumpy level, bamboo pegs, rake, shovel, 2 days and 2 blokes. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Kind regards Baz PS During all the earth works completed I did not uncover one single earth worm so I am keen to see how this site's soil biota improves over time.
