STORY

Our garden has a permaculture heart, with a focus on harvesting the maximum energy available from the sun and the surrounding natural environment.

Our vegetable garden is in our front yard to harness the sun and to inspire others to grow veggies.

We are 100% organic, thriving on manures, compost and worm juice, without the use of herbicides, fungicides or pesticides. The nutrient-rich water from our aquaponics system cycles through the two large grow beds, feeding the veggies which in turn cleans the water, producing abundant leafy greens and fish fresh from the pond.

Our house is called The Hive and the hive theme has been carried through to the design of our hexagonal hardwood wicking beds – a nightmare to build, but beautiful to behold. Wicking means that they are self-watering through a reservoir beneath the soil that is topped up monthly at the most. This efficient system results in no surface evaporation.

Our family of five love our garden, it’s set up to be abundant with minimal effort. We hope you like it too!
