This year Artist as Family invite you into our home on weekends to learn simple permaculture life skills. From April 2015 come, learn and work with us as we sow, tend, harvest, forage and store ecologically produced food, keep a low-waste household, shed a significant reliance on the monetary economy, live car-free in a town with little public transport and a myriad other things that will help you transition from a high consumption society to a fairer, less polluting one. You can camp in our backyard for free, stay elsewhere or just come for a day. Each day per adult will cost $100, which includes a locavore lunch. Email us to book a date.

An ample leanness (camping with friends)

We walked, bussed, walked, bussed and walked our way from home to the beach to join friends for a camping adventure.

We set up camp and all pitched in under the shade of some grand old cypress trees.

We found out more about the locals,

experienced new sensations,

and wrote a poem about what we understood there.

Then on the last day we all celebrated Meg's birthday and a song was made to mark the day.


  1. Beautiful family! Much love to you all.

  2. What. A lot. of babies!

    Must be breeding season over there. Speaking of which - what a beautiful bonny babe you have there. And how glowing you are as a mother.
