Event Description

Garden Visit with

David and Catherine are quite new to veggie gardening and only started their edible garden in spring 2016. Their 2.5 acre property previously housed horses and the ground was very compacted.  They have been experimenting with a few different growing methods including wicking beds, layered beds and hugelkultur.  They are also trying to improve their ground using mulch and compost so that they can also plant directly into the earth.

They have a developing food forest and have around 70 varieties, of fruiting trees on their property, either in the ground or in pots.

Catherine has a small online business selling fruit tree seedlings. They are lucky to have two 10,000 litre rain water tanks which they use to irrigate their garden, and also make use of their grey water on the fruit trees.

Please bring:

  • a plate of food to share for afternoon tea
  • your own plate, mug and a chair
  • an umbrella, just in case of rain
  • things to share on the giveaway table: seeds, seedlings or plant material of some kind.

There will be a contribution box at the event.

A contribution of between $3 and $5 per person helps Logan Food Gardeners to cover its costs.

Kids and partners are welcome. Children must stay with you or you must be watching them at all times.

Rego: Louise
