Thank you for being a part of the exciting new Sydney Edible Garden Trail. In light of the escalating situation with regards to Covid-19, we have regrettably had to make the decision to postpone the physical aspect of the edible garden trail this weekend, 21-22 March 2020. The health and safety of ticketholders, volunteers and[…]
It’s hard to imagine the world as we know it without rolls of soft toilet paper, but in Western culture it’s a relatively new invention, having been first commercially available in the US in the mid-19th century. Before that, the elite used sheets of paper produced especially for this purpose as early as the 4th[…]
Recently we asked one of our volunteers, why she’d put her hand up to help us out? Here’s what she said… I was invited to join the team to provide some admin support at a time when my mobility was compromised so it was an excellent opportunity to become involved. My role has been small[…]
Ours is a mixed garden which, at this point, includes a few edible trees, greens, vegetables, vines, flowers, cactus, orchids, bromeliads, natives and water plants. The garden was not designed with any specific style in mind. As our love of gardening and confidence grew, we experimented and added new stuff and chopped and changed. There[…]
Mackie Lane community garden was started by a group of local enthusiasts in 2008-2009. Both gardens enjoy support from Mosman Council, our 60+ members and the broader community.

Permaculture Sydney North, one of our sponsors, have donated towards packets of edible seeds to be distributed to the first 40 visitors to each of the gardens on the 2020 trail. Want to know more about Permaculture? Read on from the president of PSN…… There’s a joke that goes “If you ask a dozen permaculture[…]
The garden is a work in progress! Since Dec 2018 I have been working on the realisation of my permaculture design which is now nearing completion. I counted that I’ve planted about 130 trees during the process! We are on an uneven block with multiple levels, quite a few steps, and large amounts of rock[…]
My home is a penthouse apartment on the fourth storey of a modern apartment block in a northern suburb of Sydney, about 30 kms from the city. The useable area is about 100sqm so somewhat larger than most but 80% is tiled floor and there are a couple of large raised wall garden beds. While[…]
