has been designing permaculture gardens and water flow management for
many years. Living in leafy Repton, he has been crafting his own
integrated garden experience.
This garden has some
small annual beds, a food forest of about 500 square metres and an acre
of rainforest planting & regeneration. Seedsavers made a visit here
two years ago and saw some recently installed water conservation
measures. These measures are now working well. They include greywater
diversion to vegies, blackwater integrated into food forest, swales,
tank overflow spreader pipes and summer shade for annual vegies. The
food forest is now better shaded, sheet mulched and has a variety of
edible ground covers.
You will need to bring a chair if you would like something to sit on other than the ground!
We are always on the lookout for people (like you) to put up their hand and offer to host a gathering.
Your garden does NOT have to be perfect, finished, or planned by an expert!
We are interested in all sorts of food-growing gardens in our area -
suburban backyards, market gardens, food forests, renters struggling
with pots, new landowners with plans & ideas.
A gathering usually lasts a few hours. You specify the day and time that
suits, and let us know if numbers have to be limited, parking options
and what the access is like. Everyone brings a plate and hopefully a mug
to limit your washing up and we supply most of the tea & coffee.
You may get some personalised gardening tips from the collective
experience of the group.
