Cecilia’s permaculture garden largely follows the laissez faire method with an ongoing search for crops that:
· Satisfy household tastes or provide for swaps
· Do NOT satisfy local wildlife
· Support beneficial organisms
Cecilia enjoys sharing her knowledge, seeds and cuttings from her garden which features fruit trees, vines, a banana circle, annual veggies, herbs aplenty, swales and bunds, a small pond, chicken sharing, a shade house, water tanks, social spaces, compost bins, native bees, wormery and freecycle, swapped and rescued items in ‘resource centres’. She particularly enjoys a chat with like-minded visitors.
A feature of the garden is the variety of flowers grown to attract beneficial insects year round and plants that have highly perfumed flowers and leaves for medicinal purposes and simply for the pleasure of the scent.
The garden now includes IBC wicking beds and multiple wicking planters for increased productivity. The search for unusual but productive plants is a perpetual but enjoyable challenge.
This garden is fun for young people to explore but also includes practical ideas for the future where mobility may be reduced.
Some plants will be for sale; please bring coins!
