A very special thanks to Brett and Nici Cooper for inviting us to go on a “virtual” tour of Limestone Farm in the beautiful Karuah Valley NSW.

Then we’ll take a video tour of Limestone Farm through the inspirational footage filmed by Happen Films. We’ll start with “Beautiful 1-acre small scale permaculture farm” (2015) and then re-visit Limestone Farm 5 years later in 2020 to see the incredibly abundant homestead now.

Brett Cooper will be with us online to tell us about his innovative design for Limestone Farm and answer all your questions. What an amazing opportunity for us!!
