Event description

Description

Michael and Dru have lovingly turned the front and back yard of their rented home into an attractive and productive food garden without breaking the bank. Tidy garden beds, pretty brick baths, a rustic chook shed and greenhouse have all been built through the ingenious use of recycled materials. Chickens are integral, producing eggs and disposing of household scraps and providing valuable fertiliser, but are also cleverly managed to prevent them from decimating precious vegetables. The front garden is reminiscent of a European cottage garden with plenty of bee attracting flowering plants among the herbs, while the rear is devoted to vegetables and fruit trees including a feature fig. Vegetables and greens are carefully selected to ensure the household has a supply of fresh tasty produce all year round. Includes a demonstration of how to get the most out of homemade compost in each season.
