Fairlight – Rob’s garden

Our garden is in the backyard of a semi-detached house so space is pretty small. It is a kitchen garden designed on ‘Permaculture Principles’ working with the natural attributes of the site and using organic and some biodynamic practices.

Our aim for the garden is to be as productive as possible in the limited space, to be able to eat something from the garden every day and share when we can, and to be an example of what can be achieved in a small urban situation. 

You will see intensive vegetable growing, compost, liquid manure, worm farm, seed-saving, rainwater tanks and use, chickens, permaculture design principles in action, use of the nature strip to grow fruit trees.

We are child-friendly, dog (on a leash) friendly, but unfortunately not so accommodating for wheelchairs owing to a small step at the gate and narrow side path, however we welcome and will assist the adventurous!
