STORY

Our garden needed me to find Permaculture to figure out what to do with it! Since completing a design course at the end of 2018 I’ve worked on transforming rock, grass and a few trees and shrubs into our little piece of paradise.
Over 130 trees have been planted, most of them edible, together with veggie patches, herb gardens and wicking beds.
I love upcycling old stuff and have used quite a few items from our house renovation in the garden. My ongoing project is water management, which started with redirecting the surface run off to the back lawn swales and continued with water tanks.
The chickens are helping me create the compost, and I’ve used an old IBC tank to store bulk liquid fertilizer. I’m working towards producing as much as I can of our plant food and mulch onsite.
