About Us

Hello, and thanks for visiting!

We are the manifestation of earnest intentions for positive change – brought into being by the efforts of many.

Gabalah Syntropic Farm is the result of Scott Hall and Laura Shield’s farm lease, in the Northern Rivers Area of NSW Australia.

We use techniques in agroforestry developed by Ernst Gosht, brought here to Australia by Namaste Messerschmidt and Patricia Vaz. We also use Alan Savory’s Holistic Management to underpin our decision making, to give us strength and to ensure that our true intentions are manifested by our actions.

We focus on family, sustainable food production, landscape regeneration, community wellbeing and empowerment of common people.

We wish the very best for mankind and all life on earth, and through this project we are trying to play our small role.
