A healthy legacy for future generations

rEgenErative land Use

Much time and discussion has been taken with regard to the most effective and productive use of the land at 96 Bangalow. The main consideration has been 'what is best practice' and many of the regions finest minds have been consulted in regards to: bush regeneration, soil therapy, native food plantings, organic food systems and water management.

We are excited to commence stage one of our adventure and regenerating the existing water way 'Paddy's Creek'. This will include the eradication of invasive plant species, planting of genetically appropriate species native to the area and bush foods for the restaurant market and processing for food production.

Sustainable structures

Any built structures on the property will uphold the highest ecological standards and will strive to be self sustaining. We have engaged a team of visionary architects and designers to guide the process of renovating the existing buildings. Care and consultation with community plays a major role in our future and we look forward to sharing our ideas as we grow over the years to come.

HEalthy lifestyles

Our aim is to inspire and provide healthy options for living, working and learning. The Byron region has a wealth of offerings in health and wellness and we would like to bring a curation of it together here in Bangalow. We will grow premium organic foods, medical herbs, native bush foods and foster micro-businesses and create jobs for locals. In addition our vision is to offer education through workshops and classes focused on sustainable, meaningful and prosperous living.

The Land

96 Granuaille Rd. Bangalow

Set next to the thriving boutique country town of Bangalow this 86 acre property has been a cattle and stone fruit farm for over four decades. It's topography of rolling hills and hidden nooks offers an exciting canvas for the owners and team visioning it's metamophosis into one of the nation's most unique and prosperous rural  properties.

Bangalow is derived from the indigenous word 'Bangalla' said to mean 'low hill' or a kind palm tree native to the region. The Widjabul people of the Bundjalung Nation lived in the area for thousands of years, many of the twelve tribes of the Northern Rivers would have passed through during this time.

We acknowledge the original custodians of the the land, past, present and future.

It is our hope to regenerate the land, encourage biodiversity and work harmoniously with both as we develop healthy food systems and human spaces. Watch this space...
