The family behind Samudra had a dream to create a large scale permaculture garden on their property near Carbanup and supply themselves and as many friends as possible with fresh, vibrant, organic live food. In little over a year, previously grazed paddocks have been mulched, sculpted and transformed into raised beds, orchards and dams. Two full time staff are supported by a weekly roster of volunteers that trade their time for a bursting box of goodness. On a glorious sunny spring equinox afternoon I was given the task of picking kale, and was rewarded with a big bunch for my green smoothies. This and the joy of being close to friends, nature and an inspirational garden.
