The garden is roughly divided into two zones, orchard and veggies, but my only livestock is a top bar beehive and a collection of visiting wild…See More

Garden Visit and Talk on Hugelkultur Beds at Sheldon

November 4, 2018 from 9am to 11am

LFG Event: Annual Birthday Party and garden visit at Tanah Merah

August 5, 2018 from 1pm to 3pm
You will know if you have seen Lyn's place before, that it is really impressive and worth seeing.  Amazingly it seems to get better every year, so it is worth coming even if you have seen it before. Here is what she has to say about it:I love my garden so much.  I love the food I harvest and feed to my family and give to my friends. I love that I can create something of value for little or no money.  I love that my garden and my produce inspires other people to grow themselves.  I love that my…See More

But I wondered if anyone in LFG has a worm based waste system or knows someone who would be happy to let…
