About Me
I basically grew up on an Organic/Bio-Dynamic Market Garden in the Yarra Valley, Victoria.
I’ve experienced an enduring attachment to the soil and always enjoyed gardening in all its pursuits.

Of late I find myself in a long term rental home and I’m developing a container (in pots, grow bags, wicking pots, etc) garden. There is a significant emphasis on Bush Tucker Trees/Plants mixed with a splash of ornamentals.

My next phase is a fairly extensive containerised vegetable garden using wicking pot methods.

Ultimately, I dream a little of having a full blown Aquaponics setup and maybe even establishing a retirement funding income stream.

I’m very self-sufficient minded in that I make my own compost, potting mixes, etc. In this regard my latest endeavour is building a Biochar kiln etc. And I’m looking forward to learning more about this new (read: re-discovered ancient Aztec technology) resource and how it can greatly benefit our soils, etc.
Skills and/or knowledge I would like to share
I have a Trade/Builder Background. I built Swimming Pools and worked as a Structural Landscaper for twenty odd years. So, I’m really good at the hands on stuff. Where I’m a little weak and out of date- is on the soft-landscaping aspects. (That’s the plants side)
