… thought it might be nice to see where we are coming from. And what better way to kick off Piggy’s trip with us than a little hometown tour? Enjoy.


Our local beach - Port Willunga (or Port Willy for short - yes, you heard me)

Our local beach – Port Willy (local slang for Port Willunga) – yeah, life’s tough here…. we are spoilt with beautiful beaches, hills, fertile land and a temperate climate.

Di from Bickleigh Vale Farm entertains Emma and Piggy at her market stall – this being the wonderful organic farm we volunteer on. Di is a vortex of awesome farming energy – she has a knack for attracting young people interested in agrarian activities and generously imparts her knowledge and time to them, setting forth many a new farmer…

Spot the piggy 1 – at Emma’s school, Willunga Waldorf. Excellent school for raising grounded, creative, confident children through the alternative Waldorf (Steiner) curriculum.

The biodynamic almond grove at the school – almonds used to cover a significant portion of Willunga’s growing land. Much has been converted to vineyards for wine.

Guess which local icon Piggy is hangin at now?….
