We started organic gardening a few years ago in our barren ‘Victa mower only’ yard. We have slowly created our own wonderful garden that is as much a reflection of enthusiastic experimentation as thoughtful planting.
Our ethos is chemical free, low waste and insect friendly. We have two compost bins, a worm farm and a fish pond to bring organic nutrients back to our patch. “Low dig” is our philosophy, as we aim to build up soil quality with organic matter, in the hope of bumper crops year after year.
We practice companion planting and crop rotation in our seven raised beds. You won’t find many corners where a flower, vine or native hasn’t found a home – we fill bare patches with beneficial and medicinal plants. We are also big fans of seed collecting and propagation to help keep costs down!
Bush regeneration is also very dear to our hearts and we host a Bushcare Group with Willoughby Council and our neighbours in our rear lane. We will happily show you the amazing transformation from weed infested jungle to emerging native bushland.
For those thinking about access, we have about 8 steps at our front gate and a sloping block. Parking is available at the top of our street or in an adjacent street.
