My food gardens have always been organic and as sustainable as possible, which this one is also, just smaller.

The pivot point of the garden is the chooks. They eat scraps and greens from the garden. They then give me eggs, and also manure for the garden. This then grows our food, and the cycle keeps going round.

We make our own compost and liquid fertiliser. We have native bees for pollination of the garden, frogs to eat bugs, and we save all rain water to use in the garden. The garden beds are mainly all raised beds, but the method of gardening is very old fashioned, handed down from my Dad and his Dad before him. Everything had to be organic. And of course we have chokoes and passionfruit growing over the chook yard fences. We also have a productive verge garden.

We will be selling produce during the Trail. All proceeds going to Rural Aid to assist the farmers, who really need help.


There are six steps with a hand rail up to the vegetable garden. Otherwise the rest of the yard is quite flat. There is plenty of street parking nearby.

Tour Times

No set tour times but I will be in the garden with visitors all day, and look forward to having conversations and answering questions on the different ways of growing produce.
