Holistic local sustainability; food, water, energy, money, people
Much labour goes into production, by those living or visiting. Every attempt is made to recycle and retain materials on the block, minimize water loss, waste to land fill and introduction of materials and the use of $s. Equanimity Foundation works manually, not by choice, but as a result of being small-scale. Automation and the use of technology to minimize drudgery is a goal we aim for and encourage wherever possible. We use systems to maximise efficiency and minimise work;
– irrigation to every part of the garden
– wicker beds to minimize the need for watering
Simple rules such as keeping things together and putting things back in their place minimize work.
After the 2011 floods, there were hundreds of macadamia nuts on the huge tree and the cherry quavas were luscious.
From 2014, the garden began to produce many more fruit and vegetables.
aimer: While every attempt is made to ensure the quality, hygiene and purity of the produce, the receiver ultimately must accept them at their own risk.
