In our food garden
My staples include Asparagus, chard, cucumbers, lettuce, brassicas, onions, and beetroot. Alpine strawberries are the easiest to grow and yummiest.
I supply my children's families with eggs and share fruit with my colleagues at work. I offer surplus citrus to my neighbour, who loves making marmalade.
Standout sustainable practices
Heavy mulch helps to minimise weeding. I only use my compost for non-food plants because I recycle cat litter into the compost boxes.
Top tip for novice gardeners
Don't panic. Some things grow just fine if left on their own.
Look out for
An underground water tank with a submersible pump to manage and distribute winter rain.
NOTE: If you are sensitive to bee stings, please beware of the beehive.
For sale on the day
Kale. Everybody grows it for health, but no one eats it.
57 Darnum-Allambee Road, Darnum
There is very limited onsite parking, but it is OK to park on the roadside.
There are no steps or stairs, and the paths are wide enough for a wheelbarrow, so most likely wheelchair accessible. Children must be supervised due to a beehive and two frog and fishponds.
