IRONBARK FARM AUSTRALIA
On the 21st October 2022, through gifts provided, we moved onto Ironbark Farm Aust (Australia), 597 Temagog Road, Temagog, 2440, NSW, a debt-free, 27 acre property on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales.

WHERE TO FROM HERE?
Our dream is to find a group of villagers to co-create the Ironbark Farm Kindom Village, set amongst a paradise where there wasn't any, with almost everything built from scratch. We seek to demonstrate how village & tribal life was, pre-invasion long ago, where the people lived for the village and the kindom village took care of everyone.
Ironbark Farm Kindom Village will be a place of natural abundance with swimming holes, huge billabongs (dams), the sound of running water throughout the property, orchards, sweeping green fields, botanical gardens, food forests, organic vegetable and flower gardens, stands of trees, permaculture swales, bee hives, homes for geese, ducks, hens and larger animal friends, and native animal habitats.

Amongst this magnificent setting are simple homes for the villagers so that everyone has their space and privacy, as well as being able to enjoy community infrastructure of a community building, natural sheds, workshops and storage facilities supporting a 100% off-grid, sustainable lifestyle.
From this land, it is a 12 minute drive to our local village, Willawarrin, and a 25 minute drive to Kempsey, 60 minutes to Port Macquarie, and 85 minutes to Coffs Harbour, major towns servicing roughly 250,000 people. For glorious beaches, it is a 45 minute drive to Crescent Head, 50 minutes to Hat Head and 60 minutes to South West Rocks. In all directions we are surrounded by many fantastic national parks, reserves, lookouts, water holes, waterfalls, long or short tracks, wild beaches, and native wildlife is aplenty.

SO HOW DOES A KINDOM VILLAGE WORK
Just as we don't have to teach a puppy what it is to be a dog before it can become a dog, because the puppy learns from the example of its mother and other dogs, so, in a village of fully responsible adults, we don't have to teach children what it is to be an adult before they can become one, because they are learning from the intentions behind the actions and communications of those around them. They don't need to be taught to be a villager because they are a villager from birth, learning responsibility and care for all of life in everything they do while they explore the natural world, interacting with animals, nature and those around them.
Everything of life already has everything it needs when it first appears in the womb, seed, egg, etc, and as long as we do not interfere by telling children how to think, feel and act, the child is now no different to the puppy dog observing life as part of a pack. The sensory experiences (touch, taste, feel, smell, hear, see) in nature inspire everything already built in to instinctively and naturally expand the real life of the dog without causing any loss of uniqueness and originality to the dog, the pack and to ALL of life interacting with the pack. Collectively, they are the motherland of their true nature (life), the uncorrupted forests, valleys, plains, mountains and water systems of their BIG PICTURE Motherland.
How We Became Skilled Growing Food
In Humus 2012 to 2019
The Love For Life garden was started towards the end of 2011. We were keen to experiment with how much food we could grow in a small space, both to be able to feed our family and friends, and to inspire others living in small properties to grow food so that they were no longer so reliant on the supermarket chains.
We lived in a small cul-de-sac of 17 houses and we realised that, if everyone in the cul-de-sac took responsibility for growing something, whether fruit and nut trees if they were limited in time, or more needy vegetables if they had more free time, we would be able to feed not just the whole cul-de-sac but also people in the streets round about. Abundance can be created through a lot of effort by a few or a small amount of effort by many.
The ant colony was thriving; the babies were being taken care of in the nursery, the elderly were resting, foragers were bringing in food and builders were expanding the nest. Every ant knew its role in the colony and every ant strived every day to make sure they fulfilled those roles so that every ant had everything they needed to continue as members of the colony.
One day, an ant arrived at the colony. The ant was wearing clothes and carrying an ant-sized bag. The workers outside stared in amazement; they had never seen anything like this before. "Good morning!", said the ant. "Still working away for the good of the colony?" The other ants nodded. "I left my colony," the ant said. "Decided I didn't want to be looking after everyone else all day. Decided to look after myself for a while."
Roll up! Roll up! Roll up for a magic carpet ride through the wonderful world of The System where the choice is always yours! The magic carpet ride that takes you wherever you want to go to do whatever you want to do! Book your spot now for the holiday of your dreams! We are environmentally friendly, all our carpets are made from recycled materials and all rubbish is disposed of thoughtfully. What are you waiting for? Hop on-board!
Machine transport holidays are a magic carpet ride where the fantasy of the magic carpet floating on air is just an illusion of freedom from the everyday, humdrum existence, provided by multi-millions of men, women and children who have been kidnapped from the womb and turned into the commercial cogs of the wheels of "The System" slave machine that turns and turns its variable, commercial values and rates all across earth to provide the magic carpet ride illusion of a holiday or a little time off.
On every carpet are aeroplanes, trains, boats, cars, bikes, shops, restaurants, cafes, resorts, motorhomes, caravans, tents, streets and historical sites to choose from and there are holidays to suit every budget, from a day trip to a local amusement park to a journey in a private jet to a luxury resort. Those with no budget don't have an actual holiday but they can hop on a cheap carpet to the local pub for a bit of relaxation around the pool table.
Any time off from work is spent on mini carpet rides, whether going to the beach, the movies, a concert, or going to the hairdresser, a meditation retreat, a yoga class, a session with a cousellor or a psychologist or climb a mountain. Wherever they go in their spare time, a magic carpet takes them.
Land, food, water, and shelter - the prerequisites for life - were once freely available to our ancestors across earth. Increasingly, our access to land, food, water, and shelter is being held to ransom. Our access to life's essentials is now available only to those who labour for a lifetime to lay claim to a small plot of land as "tenants" on land title deeds. Even these title deeds are borrowed, encumbered with contracts, values, taxes, mortgages, duties and 3rd party rights to minerals, oil, air space, land, etc, and cannot freely be passed down to our children and grandchildren.
And since when has a title deed stopped the incursion of the corona vaccination or a military/police state curfew or economic recessions, depressions and inflation causing the extreme chaos of a hostile world???
The vast majority of men, women, and children all across the earth are now refugees on their motherlands. We have been separated from our lands and lineages. Middlemen and middlewomen have dictated our relationship to land, food, water, and shelter based on an economic value that has nothing to do with a moral compass or conscience.
We have been forced to live in scarcity and survival, resulting in confusion, unhappiness, despair, rage, hatred, greed, and selfishness. All this has pushed us onto a path of the annihilation of everything we cherish of life and the natural world.
We have sat back and watched our dispossession, distracted by the empty trinkets of a commercial world, while that which we need to live has been fenced off, burnt, razed, drained, starved, parched, raped, and turned into inhospitable concrete jungles.
As much as we might like to point the finger at others for this destruction, we are ALL responsible for supporting and maintaining the systems that continue that devastation. We have lost respect for life, including our lives and this is why we accept the decimation of the life that we are.
Instead of creating lives where the respect for life is paramount, we are creating lives of no respect for life, hence the destruction and devastation to life all around us.
To turn back the tide of this decimation, every man, woman, and child must once again have free access to land, food, water, and shelter. We need these basics to live our lives as the respectful, rightful caretakers of all of life. At the same time, we need to learn to let go of the habits of destruction and instead form the habits of conservation, regeneration, responsibility, community, and do-no-harm, all of which come out of our respect for life.
It is going to take a team effort to gradually extricate our lives from all the middle men and women of The System and there are many ways to support this effort; those that have the time can contribute labour, those who have skills in trades, designs, permaculture, food forests, planning, business, crafts, food preparation, etc, can bring them to the table, those who have spare resources can add them to the tools and equipment we already have, those who have financial resources can donate. Ironbark Farm Kindom Village will be the sum of everything put into it by men, women and children who dream for lives apart from The System of harm doing and destruction. It is up to each of us to do what we can to make it happen.
