I've always loved gardening. Growing up in a family of gardeners gave me a beautiful connection to my grandmothers, parents, and extended family. Now my garden links me and my children and the community. I've been involved in many school and community gardens.
In our food garden
Loads of deliciousness. Climbing beans are a favourite - best eaten fresh from the vine and amazing to look at as they climb over any form you wish. My prolific Hass avocado tree produces over 150 avocados a year.
Standout sustainable practices
Mulching beds keeps the weeds down and the soil moist. Composting combines chook manure, grass clippings, and carbon to make the most fantastic soil conditioner.
