Our Amazing workers

It is with a heavy heart that we will no longer be able to host our 2nd year visa workers from overseas.

The government has passed legislation that says that as of the 30/10/2015 farms will no longer be able to host second year visa workers unless we pay Australian award wages. For those that don’t know there has been an exchange program that has run for years that was setup to assist farmers with voluntary labour in exchange for 88 days work on farms throughout Australia.

It was an amazing program for many reasons firstly because labour is the most expensive aspect of farming in Australia as its very labour intensive job but aside from that it was wonderful to meet these young people from all over the world they were such great company.

Unfortunately like all things there were some farms that played the system and instead of the government penalising them they abolished the program that will now see thousands of small farm doing it tougher than they already are.

This post is not a whinge its about shining a light on all these wonderful souls that gave up their time to help us and I would like you to take a minute and look over their smiling faces because they were a driving force that allowed us to provide you with high quality Organic Produce.

I have wanted to create this post for so long and I am sure there are some I have missed so ill go hunting and update it once I find them.

From the deaths of our heart our family thank you and I will miss you forever!!!!!!!!!

Being exposed to different kinds of antibacterial and antiviral herbs is natural when you grow up on an herb farm. Long before I knew what herbs were used for, I saw how they were grown, cut for different uses, and packaged for herbal retail companies. You’d think I adopted the use of herbal remedies before I started my own family. Read more

AMAZONIAN PLASTIC-EATING MUSHROOMS : MORE THAN JUST MAGIC

Pestalotiopsis microspora1

Pestalotiopsis microspora is a species of endophytic fungus capable of breaking down and digesting polyurethane.[1] Originally identified in fallen foliage of common ivy (Hederae helicis) in Buenos Aires,[2] it also causes leaf spot in Hidcote (Hypericum patulum) shrubs in Japan.[3]

Its polyurethane degradation activity was discovered in the Yasuni National Forest within the Ecuadorian Amazonian rainforest by a group of student researchers led by molecular biochemistry professor Scott Strobel as part of Yale’s annual Rainforest Expedition and Laboratory. It’s the first fungus species to be able to survive exclusively on polyurethane and, more importantly, able to do so in anaerobic conditions. This makes the fungus a potential candidate for bioremediation projects involving large quantities of plastic. Read more
