Field Trip 26th July 2014 - Visit Colin Westwood property

This is not the normal fruit tree visit! We will be co-joining with the Alternate Technology Association to have a look at Colin’s native bee hives, his simple grey water diversion system, solar powered freezer and his continuous flow biogas digester system that he uses to cook with. Colin is a member of the fruit club and travels to Asia teaching English, Organic Farming, how to set up a bio-gas plant. He is passionate about sustainable organics and grows his own.
