|About the Aracaria Project
The Aracaria Project started in 2000 when Stefan Mager purchased a 24 acre somewhat run-down property that had been operated for some years as an uncertified biodynamic farm. Over time the property was cleaned up, organised and biodynamic certification was achieved. During these years food-production gardens and orchards were established and maintained. When the fundamental nature of the project changed from farm production to a park-like, creative environment, byodynamic certification was no longer required. However, the organic, holistic approach to the land continues. Today (2021) Aracaria features many spectacular gardens and an environment which includes a vast array of plants, trees, native animals, dams and waterfeatures. A number of architecturally interesting buildings have been constructed. They include the studio spaces where Stefan Mager produces the works that can be found on this site. Please note that Aracaria is not open to the public.
