Experimenting with planting combinations
Using both native and exotic plant material
Responding to the surrounding environment

We created a habitat for native animals and insects including:
Native Blue Banded Bees, Koalas visit our garden, Superb Fairy-wrens nest, Lizards scuttle around


We grow vegetables with a Mediterranean themed planting style, love to cook with seasonal organic vegetables, buy heirloom seeds and have learnt to grow most of our own seedlings, compost all our food and green waste on-site, and harvest seeds for next years’ crops
