In treecrop terms, the host property is outstanding and always interesting. With numerous fruit and nut tree species, veggie gardens, an expansive berry enclosure, green houses, beehives etc. All operated under the ‘organic’ regime, which augments well with the on-site ‘Organic Bakery’ and the environmental approach taught at the pre-school facility.
