Sustainable living

Jnana Australia researches sustainable living and is building a self-sufficient, environmentally-friendly and economical farm.


The aim is to establish a farm that is fully financially and environmentally sustainable, and enjoyable. It includes using minimal, if any, inputs that don’t come directly from the farm.

Work started in Spring 2018. An initial agriculture research building and shed has been built. It includes off-grid water and electricity supply systems, with solar and wind generation, lightning protection, waste and communication systems, and recycling of a 40ft shipping container.

The research hut was used for a bush fire mitigation workshop for the valley in August 2019. Planting of the first experimental fruit and vegetables has slowly commenced during building.
