Healing @ THE Hungry Spirit

Since we’ve been evolving THE Hungry Spirit space one of the very strong messages I’ve been receiving is that this is a healing space…and we need to share it as such.

Not one to ignore the messages I receive (mostly), I set about by creating the space where we could start the healing journey. I put up our camper trailer (with help of course from #1 son and #1 hubby!).

And then we made it available for healers to use. Not officially or formally or in any big way. A masseus from St George named Elizabeth has been the first to use it. She stays in the healing space and uses the table we have set up. It’s perfect and it’s nestled in among the trees with privacy and serenity.

Imagine being massaged with the sound of natural birdsong, warmed by the glow of the sun on canvas.

It’s a real treat.

The space is fully equipped with power, massage table, chairs, a bed for sleeping and an area for sitting/resting/consulting.

If you’d like to offer healings or services from THE Hungry Spirit Healing space please email rebel@thehungryspirit.com for availability.

New Gardens Bloom

We are always looking for ways to improve the flow at THE Hungry Spirit garden and we enjoy creating new spaces! Our latest gardens will become herb and spice patches as they are close to the kitchen, but for now they provide pathways through the site and the mulch will be breaking down over time to help build the nutrition of the soil







Our next space will be an expanse of food forrest with fruit and nut trees as well as perrenial vegetables and fruits like asparagus and rhubarb. This area will take more time to develop as we require heaps more woodchip. We are building these up using recycled cardboard boxes (laid down straight on the ground) and woodchip salvaged from the side of the road! Again it will be a year or two before we plant into these spaces as our primary focus will be on soil generation!










The final space we are blooming is for HUMAN growth…it’s a sand circle where we can dance, play, meditate and connect with nature. I experienced the most wonderful workshop on Bruny Island where we danced at sunrise in a giant sandpit under the trees. It was magic and I came home and immediately re-instated the sandpit that was in the space originally for the Aboriginal men to dance when we had THE Hungry Spirit operating as Dig In!

Watch this space for dancing sessions!







On June 28th we will be starting the first of our regular Monthly Creative Community FREE events where you can come and join us to help create and craft new spaces at THE Hungry Spirit…bring your best ideas and some food to share as we will herald in the evening with a film or documentary on the big screen too!



This Is The Maze The Girls Built!

It’s been such a treat  working with Tenneccee, Chiffona and Camryn; three awesome students at LRCS who were keen for after school and weekend work and we were thrilled to give them the opportunity to be part of THE Hungry Spirit, learn some new skills and of course earn some extra spending (or saving) money!!

Cleaning up THE Hungry Spirit space from weeds that had sprung up after all the rain we’ve been having was the first priority and then we wanted to create an area for kids, somewhere they could play, explore…so Tenneccee and Chiffona came up with the idea of a maze.

We had a heap of rocks in a pile on the site so while Rebel moved them in the wheelbarrow, the girls marked out and laid out the maze!

It took about an hour with everyone focused!

We had a big vacant spot in the middle where the old Dig In fire pit was, so decided that we could put a pile of opal dirt and tailings there and kids could spend time sorting through looking for opal!

Along the fenceline we plan to plant fruit vines so that there will be more shade on the maze and also provide delicious fruit for years to come; of course that will happen after the summer has finished!

It’s nice and shady on the maze until about 11am, so it will be a lovely early morning spot to bring kids, enjoy an organic cup of tea or coffee or cold drink and a treat while the kids play safely and use their imagination in nature!

And, as you can see from the picture below, Tennecceee and Chiffona are pretty pleased with their work, as they should be!

What To Plant NOW?

It’s getting to be that time of year when we want to be planning and preparing our gardens for the spring….in Lightning Ridge we have such a relatively mild winter we can be planting in the next week or two what other people will have to wait until September to plant!

Gardenate has a really useful simple guide HERE showing what to plant during what months. We also sell wall guides so you can stick it up in plain view and make your plans easily!

It’s always best to plant organic seeds, or if you can’t get organic seeds, those that have been grown organically or from non-hybrid seed.
