I live on 1500 square metre block of sloping land, with a creatively designed home and feel energised and uplifted by living here. The energy of the land and surrounding nature is so serene and I feel very blessed.
The mulberry tree is laden with ripe berries and we see regularly a variety of bird life and are cheekily visited by a friendly dragon lizard, who takes a nightly spa, in our water feature. We recently discovered that a bowerbird is building a nest under the trees. I am slowly finding ways to give back to the land a small measure of what is given to me so freely. With summer is on the way, how to protect my garden in very hot weather, and design a drought-hardy food garden, is of particular interest to me.
Morag Gamble is my Guru in this area, such an inspiring woman, and an amazing teacher. Check out her video
