Our SpurTopia Homestead is aiming to be self-sufficient (energy, water, food and waste-free) to showcase our home for people to come and be inspired.

Applying a clever design, our ideas, inventions and engineering, including using readily available materials, make the place outstanding with continuous improvements. We passionately like to share practical and inexpensive ideas for sustainable living.

You could see us on ABC’s Gardening Australia, Channel 11’s Totally Wild, Channel 10’s BrainBuzz, Bris 31 TV and numerous newspaper and magazine articles, radio interviews, talks and workshops.

Using entire land to our benefit – Permaculture design
– Food Production
– Energy positive
– close to water sufficiency
– nearly waste free

Donations for refreshments on the day will be appreciated.

Come and BE INSPIRED TO CREATE YOUR OWN UTOPIA.

We run countless of inspirational, educational and empowering talks and workshops.
