Jo-anne and Allan live off-the-grid on their 5ha property. Solar panels and windmills provide their power which is stored in recycled batteries. Allan has built the glasshouse, windmill and other garden structures from reused and recycled materials. Jo-anne has established a large permaculture, self-seeding garden and orchard.
