New tour season at Melliodora

Spring is a wonderful time to be in nature, also a great time to visit Melliodora. Make sure to book well in advance, as they are very popular.

While taking in the blossoms, daffodils and new green shoots, visitors on the tour also learnt about the practicalities of creating an interacting, productive food garden, maintaining a system that supports goats, geese, chooks, and humans, and how the four people who live here (plus visitors) are sustained through the Melliodora plants and animals on the property.
