Event description

Description

Maya has created an edible garden that is as beautiful as it is fruitful. Decorative, highly productive hedges are formed from pruned and grafted fruit trees using a unique combination of espalier, cordon, ‘Bouche Thomas’ and/or dwarfing rootstock to create intriguing shapes and patterns. The garden features over 28 apple trees, cane and bush berries, persimmons, cherry guavas, feijoas and citrus. Mature grape vines are trained against the house helping cool it in summer and yielding delicious summer grapes. Maya practices organic and biodynamic gardening methods using recycled rain water and extensive composting systems. Maya has ‘Araucana’ chickens, originally bred in South America, kept as much for their wonderfully friendly nature as for their beautiful pale blue eggs. This garden is a delight to all the senses, not just the tastebuds!
