Growing, creating and using natural, sustainable products is very important to us. Of course eating fresh, raw, spray free food straight from our own garden is too. It is all part of a solution to a better healthier planet. I have ordered many of these seeds from Heirloom Organ
Many people have made the switch to our hand made, 100% natural and palm oil free soaps but we have also been selected by CHOICE (Australias leading consumer advocacy group for over 50 years.) to provide soaps, boxed as invitations, to go out across Australia for this years 2013 awards.
I received today a box with our soap.
I just wanted to say a really big thank you, it smells amazing! and the product has come up fantastic.
Thank you for all your help.

Running through our town was this adventure runner, 53 year old Kay.
We met Kay on the side of the road when we saw him today running along the highway into Donnybrook. I felt compelled to stop and run alongside to find out what he was about. His jogging "pram" built for twins was filled with supplies and he had a flag saying "peace Run" running 40 000kms. He had started in Perth and in 4 days had travelled approx 250kms and was heading to Sydney, a journey of 8000kms.
We signed his peace flag offering Peace, Love and a safe Journey. Did I mention he is 53!
Kay just wants Peace, he says:
"Moving is traveling.
We meet people through traveling and talk to each other. There will be SMILE through communication.
Smlie leads PEACE of mind. With PEACE of mind, we can have gratitude for anything around us. Then there is small PEACE beginning to grow right there.
If each one of us have PEACE of mind, the state of PEACE will surely appear..."

I started making soap as I have sensitive skin and so did many people around me. I wanted to make a product that was natural, gentle, affordable, sustainable and made locally. I value health, fairness, truth and our environment.
