Event description

Description

This multi-purpose garden was established in the spring of 2014 with an impatient, hopeful, and feeble attempt at growing a sweet potato in heavy clay soil. The acceptance of reality lead to the introduction of growing boxes and started the continuous work to improve the soil. Based around principals of sustainability and a complete inability to dispose of anything that hasn’t been utilised a number of times, much of the infrastructure in the garden is made from materials collected from hard rubbish and building sites or repurposed from a previous life; even from within the garden itself. The garden includes established and young fruit trees, vegetables and herbs, children and toys, chickens and bees, ornamental plants, lawn, and often some kind of construction project. It is a flexible and evolving space that everyone in the house loves to be in.
