About Meine Tekema
Most of my life has been as a resident of Gippsland. I grew up in a rural part of Gippsland. As a child I spent my time working on the family farm and enjoying exploring nature in the local bush.
I have watched the changes in agriculture from being a variety of disciplines to todays highly focused industry; the boom of the power and coal industry and its current slow decline; the changes in culture as new people from the city, refugees from far off places and locals displaced economically shape the culture of Gippsland.
I have enjoyed the natural landscape that we mold and that shapes us. Our gigantic ash forests that envelop you as if in a cathedral, the tamed landscape of farmland and creative beautiful gardens. The geological landscapes of beaches, rivers, rainforests and broad plains.
This website is an expression of all these aspects and more.
