Jo-anne Mowat and Allan Nokes

Jo-anne and Allan live off the grid on their 5ha property. Solar panels and windmills provide their power, stored in recycled batteries. Allan has built the glasshouse, windmill and other garden structures from reused and recycled materials. Jo-anne has established a large permaculture, self-seeding garden and orchard. Plans are in place to build a passive solar house this Summer.
