23. The Little Insect Farm

161 Sangster Road, Eltham
Based on top of a hill, the Jacobson’s have had sustainability in the forefront of their decisions. They have built an orchard and veggie garden in the sloping terrain. They have a range of animals and are developing a food forest with swales & mulch basins. With composting toilets, rocket stove projects, rammed-earth tyre retaining walls, and insect farming, this is an inspiring property to visit and on the way to Rotokare Scenic Reserve.
