CelebrATE!

Tom and I are excited to open our gates to people for CelebrATE! on Labour Day weekend, and to showcase our permaculture property which is currently providing us with around 90% of our food, 100% of our cooking energy needs and most of our animal feed.
The not for profit Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast Inc. (www.permaculturesunshinecoast.org) is organising CelebrATE!, a two day celebration of Permaculture, Music and Food on our Permaculture Demonstration and Education site “Maungaraeeda” (Place of Food) in the Noosa Hinterland town of Kin Kin on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

Early morning cow routines

The early morning cow routines at Maungaraeeda, home of Tom and Zaia Kendall and the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast are very satisfying, both due to the connections between people and cows and for the end products.

Why we do things the “hard way”
