Karin: 1987 my family and I moved from Germany to this beautiful spot in the Tamar Valley and lived here ever since.
I have travelled extensively throughout Europe, USA, Scandinavia, Africa and Australia and experienced a lot of accommodation places throughout. That’ why I know what a traveller is looking for. We opened our studio apartment to meet lovely people from all over the world and share our little paradise with them.
After 10 years working as an Accounts Officer in the hospitality industry I have now resigned from my job to fully commit myself in our own small business Terra-Preta Developments helping to spread the word about BIOCHAR. I am still working in the accounts and administration, but I also help to produce “Frank’s Char” and promoting it through nurseries and weekend Markets. I believe biochar has got huge potential and will be a growing industry in the future.
In my free time I love spending time with my grandchildren and socializing with family and friends. Also I enjoy gardening, bushwalking, photography, patchwork & quilting, Pilates, dancing, and when time allows I love cooking my own bread & delicious cakes, also preserving our own fruit and vegetables.
Frank: It is now about 30 years when I first visited Tasmania to explore the Island and the potential opportunities to become part of the Community.
I was simply stunned by the vista from the Brady's Lookout Reserve now just up the hill from us. Little did I know that about 2 and a half years later would be move into our new home with plenty of land to grow things and provide the lifestyle with pets and farm animals that our then little children would have to look after.
What a life!
We planted fruit trees as soon as the season allowed us to. Now we have a great mix of stone-fruits such as Cherries, Apricots, Peaches, Plumes, Prunes; then the pip-fruits such as various apples and pears.
The Vegetable Garden is providing many good things apart from the greens, asparagus, also soft fruits such as Raspberries and Strawberries during December and Currants in January.
I have also established a Hazelnut Orchard more than 20 years that now covers nearly one third of the property and the nuts are ready for harvest from about late February.
No chemical spray is used here and no artificial fertilisers.
For the last 8 years I am involved research, production and use of Biochar,
Bio = Greek for life. Using char-(coal) to foster life in soil and water.
I am very active in establishing the understanding of the potential of Biochar in healthy soil development, horticulture, aquaculture and farming. There are very interesting opportunities to be explored with anyone interested in caring for the land, soil health, carbon sequestration and renewable energy from what is still considered organic 'waste', also called 'unloved biomass'.
My professional background is in ecological forest management and training of responsible forest management principles.
My passion is in local community action for a better Tasmania, for short, medium and long term, inter-generational benefit. I am linked up with many organisations that care for the environment and the people across the Island, the Country and other continents.
My love is for Karin, my dear wife of 34 years and the whole family, our children and grandchildren - that keeps me going. Tasmania is home for us.
Since we have opened the apartment I have had the pleasure to meet some fascinating people from around the Country and the World.
Ond mir schwätzed au schwäbisch!
