Hello everyone! We would like to tell you a little bit about our adventures while staying at Pete and Deb’s.  First off our names are Justin and Tessa and we are a Canadian couple here in Australia to experience and learn about Australian daily life.

We found Pete and Deb’s description in the wwoof book very unique in the sence that it is a residential property transformed into an organic farm.  We arrived here on December 20th with the intention of only staying a week but we were having so much fun we decided to stay for another week.

It was a busy time with preparing for Christmas and the New Year.  Christmas prep included a backyard makeover, to setting up a huge tent in the driveway,  to the crazyness of midnight shopping.  What we learned most during our stay at Pete and Debs was how much fun it can be to have a front yard transformed into an organic haven.

It is very easy to maintain and you produce very little rubbish because virtually everything can be reused or composted in some way.  One big project included setting up an old steal frame carport by the kitchen window to grow grapes up and help shade the house.

We also had lots of fun looking after Sophia and her friends that came around.   Justin really enjoyed learning how to home brew beer with Pete
