Currently our energies are directed on building the strawbale education centre. As we are building it ourselves with the help of volunteers, we are putting the retail nursery on hold this year (you can still visit by appointment as we still have a small range of stock).
We are still growing a few wholesale orders this year but are juggling our time with the building which is taking priority. We will have a few spare plants over the season of which we will advertise on FB as they are ready. Yilgarn seed sales are still available on line.
On the building we are having fun at the moment making experimental clay renders for the strawbales with lots of recipes with sand, clay and straw to find the best one with the correct strength, colour and durability.
