    Hi,
    My name is Morena, and I live in Bundaberg QLD, along with my husband and two boys aged 14 and 9. We moved here from Sydney's suburbs about 5 years ago, to try to lead a simpler, more relaxed lifestyle. It wasn't until about a year ago that I discovered this 'Permaculture' thing, and that kickstarted my love of all things growing!
    We are in the middle of searching for our dream home, where we would like to become ALMOST self sustainable. I say almost because we are both not ready to raise our own meats (besides chicken) and so we are planning on starting off with as many different fruits and vegetables as possible.
    I hope to gain a lot of knowledge from this site and these forums :)
    Cheers!

    Greetings Morena and welcome,
    No worries about growing your own meats ... we have plenty of locals to do that for us in exchange (for various things including money). We are also able to source our manure from these same folks. Looking forward to following along with your projects!

    Hi Aroideana and Morena

    I'm new to the Bundaberg area and would be interested in this rare fruit growers group. I haven't been able to find a contact through a google search. Is there a facebook group or contact either of you could share?

    Thanks Bill, I've just been in contact with the group and found a tree nursery and others.

    My mother was a Kearns, from Crossmolina, Co. Mayo, Ireland.

    Cheers
