G'day,
*'Dalpura' has been under development as a Broadacre Permaculture Forestry &
Silvapastoral operation since 1997. The 140 acre site in the eastern (dry!)
Otways just 10km north of Angelsea/Torquay was designed by Australia Felix
Permaculture's Darren Doherty & Ben Boxshall in 1996. The site has over 120
species of managed Forestry, Tree Crop & Fodder species over a total of over
50 000 trees planted, all on a Keyline Design layout with many integrated
into the pastoral systems of the property. Over that time Darren has
continuously been involved in the ongoing design & development of the site
along with a host of other's including as David Holmgren, David Griffiths,
Paul 'Ringo' Kean, Derek Ashby, Cam Wilson and many others. 'Dalpura' is
about to undergo another phase of development as a Farm Stay facility,
adding to the enterprise mix as designed by award winning architects Third
Ecology (http://www.thirdecology.com.au/) of nearby Geelong.  *
