Monkey Gully

Mark and Helen Wilson bought Monkey Gully as a bare block in 1997. Straightaway, they planted natives for shelter and to attract birds and insects.

Two decades later, their 80 acres of mixed pasture and bushland includes a sloping acre of sunny orchard and raised veggie beds with views to the adjacent State Forest.

In our food garden

Both of us enjoy growing, harvesting, preserving, and eating the produce from our self-seeding vegetable patch. The orchard contains many varieties of fruit trees, including espaliered apples, pears, and stone fruit, as well as citrus and berries.

Standout sustainable practices

We allow our vegetables and flowers to self-seed to avoid bare soil and benefit other creatures. We combine permaculture and regenerative agriculture principles for building and maintaining healthy soil and growing flourishing food crops.

Top tip for novice gardeners

Just begin. Gardens are incredibly forgiving.

Look out for

The number and variety of little birds and insects. Although we provide an information sheet about our garden, we are happy to take you around the garden and answer your questions.

Nasturtium: undervalued, living mulch, generous self-seeder, good for chooks; a little floral and a bit of spice.
