Equanimity Foundation

Local sustainability

Produce

All produce is lovingly nurtured by hand (mostly) organically using permaculture principles.  Click here to see a current list of available food and plants. 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.

macadamia

After the 2011 floods, there were hundreds of macadamia nuts on the huge tree and the cherry quavas were luscious.

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.
