Simple Living - Higher Thinking
Get a taste of a different way of life. Slow down. Live a little more simply. Take time out to reflect and rediscover what is important in your life. Relax and revive. Enjoy the fresh air and wholesome organic food.
Join in as much or as little as you like and learn by doing - organic cooking, permaculture organic gardening, meditation. Feed the chickens. Relax by the fire in winter. Swim in our spring-fed dam in summer. Read a book from our library. Or simply enjoy nature - Wake up to the sound of whip birds, walk, take in a sunset...
