Since 1991 Gordon Garradd has been living off-grid on mostly renewable energy. A pioneer for the area he could see that connecting to the grid was a waste of resources and set about researching and keeping up to date with the latest in solar, wind and off-grid systems.
Throughout the nineties Gordon set about planting trees. As many as he could get his hands on. The rule was natives (especially local varieties) or useful.
