Longueville – Mandy’s Japanese Fusion Style Garden

Mandy’s garden is a fusion between Permaculture and Japanese styles. Having recently left a large Permaculture garden for something a bit flatter and easier to manage, she is embracing the challenge of blending the existing Ken Lamb designed Japanese garden, complete with large koi carp, with her passion for growing all things edible and Permacultural.

Helping her with the task is the garden designer Cecilia Macaulay who, as fate would have it, designs Permaculture gardens, but now lives and works quite a bit in Japan. Mandy is hoping Cecilia with her great eye for beauty can come up with some ingenious ways to make this work and a design that will result in a harmonious blend of both these ideas.

Recently installed wicking beds are already producing some salads and fruit trees have gone into the ground. Many things in pots from the previous garden will gradually find their place. Already a beautiful spot to meditate, pick dinner, enjoy the harbour views, giant Angophoras and the sound of the waterfall, while learning, adapting and problem solving in true Permacultural style.

Seedlings, large pre-loved ceramic and terracotta pots, pretty pre-loved and upcycled items will be for sale. Cornish cream teas will be served beside the waterfall.

Installation by Artists: Chloe Alice & Frances Mahony

Chloe from https://www.incolourcreative.com/ creates beautiful gum blossums from industrial waste. Her work inspires upcycling and waste limitation. Frances loves to instill subtle infusions of her observations and reflections on the natural environment to arouse curiosity.
