Over this time, we have learnt that if you plant a lot of fruit trees you are likely to get a lot of fruit, and if you plant a lot of timber trees you are likely to grow a lot of timber (firewood, posts and poles, sawlogs etc) and that over the longer time the trees do most of the work, if you are lucky, persistent, patient and have a modicum of diligence. The tress have taught us to think longer term and count our time in decades and generations, not hours and days. This it seems is useful for “sustainable living” so long as we don’t starve waiting.

Occasionally, we have time to celebrate the beauty and abundance we are surround by and so we decided that it is time to share the celebrations and so we invite you and anybody else to come and enjoy the harvest bounty and the vistas.
