    ... character (named Ken, go figure) who was very keen on permaculture and alternative energy. Had we been staying longer he'd have taken us on a 2.5 hour hike around the property showing us what he's managed to put together. I got the feeling he was a bit sad that we were only there for one night, I think most of the time he gets student groups who really want to learn about this sort of thing.
