This is going to be a marvellous place in Victoria. Lots of great ideas and visions for the local community and everyone else are going on there – just inspiring and impressive. I’m sincerely grateful and honored to have been chosen to be their first helpx helper. I only stayed with Edward, Fiona, Sierra and Mila a few days, but it was a pleasurable adventure and I felt like a part of the family in hours. The kids are fun and more than charming, and by the way, Edward has kept his 5 minute challenge promise and I need to mention his home-made gherkins. What a great taste. So all in all I highly recommend that place. Thanks for inviting me! 10 Stars are going to you and for the future all the best. In Peace. Seb
