Simon, from Germany via Melbourne is here as a volunteer. Precision tool maker by profession, he has taken over preparing the brush hooks and other tools used in our winter lantana ease back. It will be a pleasure our first full day of lantana work during a cooler day.
Yesterday we worked in a follow up area, slashing around merging red and white cedars amongst others. A variety of trees are emerging, from sand paper fig to tamarind. I hope I can record everything that sprouts.
Today, bamboo harvest and line cut. Simon has already created a couple of wind instruments out of the black bamboo. 2 stacks of bamboo poles for the garden and piles of much.
3 weeks after it feast on a small joey. Still asleep beneath the bananas.
