March 2014 Garden

In March we visited the poperty of Stefan Mager in the Mullumbimby hinterland

When Stefan and his wife bought the property it was a certified Bio-dynamic farm with a modest commercial fresh vegetable garden.
Although committed to the principles of BD they found fresh produce was not a commercial proposition. With some lateral thinking and a print background, the Magers are developing in a new direction.

They supply BD balls (see the horns below that produce it) to interested farmers while keeping their farm BD certified.
Soap is manufactured on site and a large array of informative glossy gardening guides are produced by Stefan.
As well the vegetable plot has now been transformed into the circular garden at the entrance to the property.
