Finally I've managed some pics of my homestead.  I thought it was time to show just how Permaculture can change a landscape.

I myself don't own a smart phone, and won't get yet another digital camera as I have gone through 3 of them over the years (junk).  I have instead patiently waited on those individuals who have taken pics of my place to procure the following.  

Now where the livestock is concerned, they are more in number than shown here, but seeing as they are free-range, it's harder to get a group shot.  When the occasion presents itself I'll post those.

Cheers!  K

Looks beautiful, Kate! Having had the privilege to visit your homestead, and see it up close, I can say with great enthusiasm that it's every bit as wonderful as you could imagine, and then some. So inspiring! We left with more than a few tips and tricks to apply to our own homestead and permaculture applications.

Looks like since I was last over there, things have become even more magical. I love that pond and your rain barrel catchment system. That outdoor kitchen is really coming along too. While the work you guys put in definitely shows in the pics, I'm sure it's even more awe-inspiring in person.

Would love to set up another visit with you, perhaps some time in the spring when things are kicking off again?

Say Hi to the crew for me. Talk soon!
