Event Description

Lyn is living the dream (well her dream anyway): family, friends and a productive 1/2 acre block.  Come and see for yourself what 20 years of pottering around in a backyard can do. 

From its humble beginnings in 2000 the property has been transformed into an abundant food garden teaming with life.  The original soil was hard, rocky and dry.  Every year has seen the soil grow richer and the plants grow better.  In the last few years she has increased the quantity of compost used and the amount of water in the soil (through better irrigation- thanks to her hubby). 

The covid lockdowns allowed her and her husband to get into the garden and do some much needed pruning and tidying.  Although it will never be described as a neat garden, it is certainly a wonderful garden.  Here are a few things she has done recently:

  • She has also removed the bananas near the house as they were diseased.  This area has been replanted with a few fruit trees and annual flowers.  
  • joined up her chook run to the spare chook run, with a tunnel.  This gives the chooks some more space.
  • moved some garden beds to allow them to drive their 4WD right through the garden and out the bottom (the 4WD makes a fantastic giant wheelbarrow).
  • Planted more fruit trees
  • Started the final raised bed on contour.

If you haven't seen Lyn’s place before, you are going to love it, but if you have, you will know that there is always something new to see.

Please bring along:
- things to share: excess produce, seeds, seedlings, plant material
- your own afternoon tea
- a hat  
- a small folding chair
- a mug and plate

There will be a contribution box at the event and your contribution of between $3 and $5 per person will help Logan Food Gardeners' Inc. to cover its costs.

Numbers limited due to physical distancing requirements, so please get your free ticket on this link.

Hi Chelsi, I booked 2 tickets on the eventbrite site but my friend is not able to come now.

I didn't know we needed to book on this site as well but have done so now.

Wendy is also coming.
