Artist as Family - a family portrait.

No big land to grow food? No problem!

Artist as Family lives on Dja Dja Wurrung country in Central Victoria, Australia and teaches us how to do it…
On their 1/4 acre permaculture plot they grow vegetables, fruit and even nuts.

Few other fascinating facts:

  • They share their land with volunteers, chickens, ducks and bees, and keep goats on the common land nearby.
  • They live car and supermarket free as a means of living carbon positively and as a way to reclaim health, and a sense of deep belonging to the land they call home.
  • They plant native and introduced species to attract bees, other pollinators and beneficial insects, so that every being who comes to the property is cared for and encouraged to express their individual and collective vitality.
