What is Syntropic Farming?

Syntropic Farming is an innovative approach to regenerative agriculture which allows us to create dynamic, successional, and economically viable ecosystems that restore degraded soil biodiversity. By understanding and respecting nature's complex system, Syntropic Farming imitates the natural regeneration of forests and provides a harmonious integration of our food production systems.

The Principles

The following guiding principles were laid out by our instructors:
  • Keep the soil covered
  • Maximize photosynthesis
  • Stratification
  • Synchronization
  • Natural succession
  • Management

Bellbunya is a rural, working property with attendant risk and dangers. Further, as a Spiritual, Intentional Community, it is important that all visitors are aware of inherent dangers in such a property and that there is an expectation of personal responsibility and an acceptance of the inherent risks upon entrance to Bellbunya. Please read the following document carefully and understand it thoroughly before signing.

As a condition of entrance, I agree to this release of claims, waiver of liability and assumption of risks. I hereby assume all of the risks of attending Bellbunya and participating in any activity therein, including and not limited to, any risks that may arise from dangerous or defective equipment or property owned, maintained or controlled by the ASC or Bellbunya, or because of their possible liability without fault.

I acknowledge that this Accident Waiver and Release of Liability Form will be used by the ASC and any event holders and organisers of activities at Bellbunya, and that it will govern my actions and responsibilities at any event or activity at Bellbunya. In consideration of my application and permitting my attendance at Bellbunya, I hereby take action for myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns as follows:

I am aware that in addition to usual dangers and risks, Bellbunya as a working rural property has certain additional dangers and risks such of which may include snake or spider bite, falling trees or branches, fire, machine tool misuse, waterway mishap or physical overexertion and due to its remoteness, medical services and/or evacuation may prove difficult in a timely manner.

I accept and assume all the risks, both foreseeable and unforeseeable, inherent in such a property and all activities associated thereto, and the possibility of personal injury, death, property damage or loss resulting therefrom. I acknowledge that the enjoyment and satisfaction from a visit or stay at Bellbunya is derived in part from inherent risks associated with its remoteness, rural nature and from participation in its many activities and that these inherent risks contribute to such enjoyment and satisfaction.

I am not relying on any oral, written, or visual representations or statements by the ASC, its staff or volunteers or any other inducement or coercion to visit or stay at Bellbunya.
