Sally van Gent - Clay Gully
Sally van Gent wonders how to utilise the beautiful land of Clay Gully. Goats? A vineyard? Remembering the sweet fruit she ate as a child she decides to establish a heritage apple orchard. She sets to work - and soon enough, rains falter, bugs, birds and feral animals attack the trees, and a snake takes refuge in the leg of her jeans. As the drought takes its toll and animals in the surrounding bush begin to suffer, Sally fights to keep her orchard alive. More information on Clay Gully here
Sally van Gent lives in a forest near Bendigo with her husband and their many demanding dogs, fish, tame magpies and visiting kangaroos.
