The information presented on this site is the culmination of research work done by Helen Simmonds over many years. Helen and her late husband Jock were well known goat breeders based on their property, Rowanpark, at Calga in the inland rural part of the Central Coast in NSW.
Helen decided the time had now come to bring her work to a conclusion, and sought the assistance of the Mangrove Mountain Computer Club, of which they are both members, with publishing it on the web rather than in another book. Helen has generously donated the culmination of her work to the Club.
As Helen says “This site aims to provide information to livestock producers, and to the backyard gardener, on the effects some plants can have on our lives.”
