I have been working on a website sharing what we do here on a half acre in sub tropical Queensland, Australia. The tagline is sustainability in the suburbs and that is what we are working towards. We are aware we will never completely get there, but we will get closer I have just started a links page and now that I have linked to Permies, something I wanted to do first, I thought I would begin sharing here.

The idea behind the website is that I share what we do on our half acre via articles that teach others how to do the same. So far I have and I plan to continue to write one article per week. In time some of the articles will be about off site systems but I will make it very clear when that is the case.

You can see the website at pobblebonk.com.au
The name is a tribute to a local frog species found here. As I write articles I will post them here with a short description.

Ok for starters I will share the articles so far. Over time I will update these articles as we learn more and discover better ways of doing things.

Cancel Your Phone Book - We started off with a quick guide detailing how those in Australia can cancel their automatic phone book delivery. It seems crazy in this day and age that every single household needs a massive annual phone book. Cancelling your phonebook saves paper and the energy needed to manufacture it.

Growing Bananas - How we grow bananas here. Bananas are one of our most productive crops and certainly keep you motivated.

Compost Worms - Worms are an integral part of our system. Being in a warmer climate they are pretty much always 'on' here.

Vetiver - Vetiver is one of my favourite plants. It is amazing for managing erosion and for slowing down water.

Dragon Fruit - How we grow dragon fruit at Pobblebonk. We only grow the yellow and red with red center dragon fruit but the techniques are the same for all varieties.

That's it for now, I will post more as/when we write them

Stingless Bee Flight Range - An article discussing the flight range of stingless bees, particularly in comparison to normal honey bees.

 
Try 100 things. 2 will work out, but you will never know in advance which 2. This tiny ad might be one:
