On to the farm….

I decided to volunteer at Tiger Hill before I left home. I was told that 6 weeks in Tas was too long to cycle about, and it is all good, but my time here is not long enough!  it is very interesting to learn more about permaculture and Paul seems to have most of the literature on it. Bill Wollison, the fellow who coined the term permaculture ( from permanent culture and permanent agriculture), is from Tasmania. The course we are catering for is Earthworks and they are surveying the property and getting ready to build a proper dam to help with water catchment and flow.

My first night at Tiger Hill just happened to be pizza night! Paul on the right, and Francesca, his mainstay volunteer for the last 3 months, who takes care of the sourdough, kefia and kombucha, plus has an excellent attitude and kind demeanour.

    I had my first Kombucha tea (with ginger) last night and it was delicious! I am enjoying all pictures and stories of your travels. Thanks.

    1. The kefia the girls are making here is rather alcoholic, and I am sure enjoying the kombucha, sounds really nice with ginger, and so good for us to! I am glad you like the blog, it’s fun! Xoxoxo
