So who is our guest speaker Ella?
Ella Maesepp was a previous employee of Dumbleyung Landcare, and currently calls Katanning home. Ella and her husband David live on a 2000 hectare property and all though they are traditional sheep and grain farmers, their farm home is less traditional as they live completely off the grid and are extremely environmentally friendly.
Living in a house built of Barley Straw ‘bricks’ the family of four live off the grid, utilising renewable solar energy to power their house and wind energy turbine to power their electric car.
Now, an employee of the Katanning Landcare, Ella has implemented a variety of initiatives which assist people to live a cleaner and more sustainable lifestyle. Initiatives include a 10 week bin transformation and a nappy library just to name a few!
