melbmutch is a visual and textual history and overview of the life of David, Hua, George and Sasha Mutch in Upper Ferntree Gully, Victoria Melbourne.
A little about us. We live in a semi rural district on the eastern outskirts of Melbourne at the foot of Mount Dandenong in the the Dandenong Ranges. Climate is usually mild but can get down to 0 degrees Celsius in Winter and over 40 degrees Celsius in Summer. The area is heavily forested and is at risk of bushfires in summer. The land is steep at around 25 degrees and is classified as 'escarpment'. We are surrounded by native flora and fauna and are frequently visited by possums, parrots, owls, blue-tongue lizards and many other native animals.
We try to live within our environmental context and as sustainably as possible, continuously improving our lifestyle through a decrease in our environmental footprint.
