The homestead offers beautiful places to sit and contemplate nature.
Labyrinth on the edge of the lake
The labyrinth was built by those at the Easter Gathering in 2015 using stones from the edge of Weereewa (Lake George)
Our food policy is to source locally-grown, organic produce as far as possible. We have a farm manager who is developing our orchards and gardens to be self-sustaining by 2020. We cater for most diets and food allergies. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
Woodhouse Room and Library
The Woodhouse Room is our main Meeting Room and houses our comprehensive library of Quaker texts, and literature on activism, indigenous interests and other relevant texts.
The dining room can seat up to around forty people and looks out onto the terrace and the garden with views to the north of the property. The screened bifold doors allow the space to be opened in warm weather.
Orchard and food gardens
Our orchard features many varieties of productive fruit trees - cherries, plums, peaches, apples, nectarines, pears, figs, medlar. We grow seasonal produce in the poly tunnels and our chickens provide eggs. We are working to be largely self-sufficient in organically grown fruit and vegetables by 2020.
Sacred Fire, Shearing Shed, Camp Grounds
In 2013, Silver Wattle was entrusted with coals from the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra. We welcome visitors with an acknowledgement of Country and a welcome to country if an Aboriginal elder from this country is present. The Shearing Shed is to be developed into a space for movement activities and a creative space for artists. The Camping Ground with covered bbq area is being developed in 2017.
Silver Wattle Learning courses are designed to deepen Spirit through prayer and community living so that participants are renewed when they return to live and be in the world.
