Rivendell home gardens are a manageable size - big enough for a vine covered arbour, a few trees and
flower beds, and to grow some salad vegetables and herbs; but not so big that they can't be completely
paved over to make patios with no more than a few potted shrubs to tend.
Nimbin is surrounded by four world heritage listed national parks with some of the most pristine rainforests
that Australia has to offer.
Within Rivendell we have our own rainforest remnant along the western and southern boundaries. It is
being regenerated, and walking tracks are being added to improve amenity for residents.
