  1. Far out nice filming. What gadgets do u use mate including audio's, i would like to purchase

  2. Why do Caucasians never wash the detergent off of their kitchenware? Do they not know how soaps work or something? I’ll just explain it briefly, the bubbles or ‘micelles’ that form when you use dish washing liquid traps oil and other particles within the bubbles which facilitates their removal in water. If you don’t wash it off, not only are you eating the residual oil and food particles but are also eating a lot more of the chemicals in the dish washing liquid. Rinse those god damn plates ladies, it only take an extra second or two but makes a lot of difference.

  3. please, don't disturb the rainworms! Look at the book "Charles Darwin – THE FORMATION OF VEGETABLE MOULD – ACTION OF WORMS"… 😉

  5. New subscriber here, WoW just WOW, that was so beautiful and relaxing and educational and what a truly mindful balanced and calm existence you've set up there. I miss my 'girls' and my veggie and herb garden when I lived on the Toowoomba range years ago. I'm on an island now and struggle to grow anything, it's just a different lifestyle I envy what you have created there. Thank you for sharing this with us 🙏🌼🌿🐝🌻🌱💚💜🌃

  6. So happy I found you! Got yourself a follower. Don't even have a garden but proudly growing Moringa tree in a pot and dreaming lol

  7. I aspire to have this kind of lifestyle. I’m so tired and exhausted dealing with society. I want this. I just want this😢

  8. Fantastic video…you're connection with the earth is palpable. I can taste it through your food, hear it in your voice and feel it through your energy. You have created a life for yourself that most dream of. I am truly inspired by you!

  9. Hi man
    When you eating do not talking
    Or do not showing your food to others. !
    Because maybe someone is hungry
    And he can't find a little food !
    If he or she do not see the he or she can forget it
    But if you showing the food to them
    You remember to them
    So you Garret 🤔☁️⛅🌄🙋🤫
