Well Glen has begun his foray into permaculture his block is slashed, he has brought in a chap to create a dam, swales will be created, fruit trees and rain forest trees will be planted, vegetable beds will be planted as well. He has bought a tractor to help with the labour and will cut and mill his own timber, first job a shed and then a ford across the creek, he can't wait roll on March.

He went to put up this letterbox at the end of his driveway and he came upon a couple of Greenies on his land taking photos of the causeway being built and he fronted them They thought it was council land, He put them straight. Permaculture will win everytime against Greenies.

He will be cutting up Camphor Laurel for benchtops and wood turning.

If you contact a fencing contractor they are only too happy to let you know where they are replacing a fence. Usually they charge the property owner to take it away.

Hi Christine. If Glenn has any spare timber to sell or even give away, let us know. We're always interested in wood!
