About the Author

The author lives on an organic farm which is not connected to the electricity grid (100% powered by solar PV). The farm is at an elevation of about 700m (2,300ft) above sea level in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, Australia. There are about 300 fruit trees (honestly, I lost count), heritage chickens, bees, berries, vegetables, flowers and herbs all on 22 acres of cool temperate tall eucalyptus forest.
