SATURDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER 10AM
Visiting Susanne at Brighton! Susanne has squeezed a lot of interesting things into her smallish suburban block and she is very creative when it comes to using her produce. A very interesting lady.
Parking is available in the street.
My yard is on a very slight downhill slope, it is flat to walk, there is the occasional 'surprise!' depression from the chooks, hopefully no 'surprises' from the pup, I try to keep on top of them :)
The house toilet is inside which means 4 stairs at the back, 6 at the front. I have some outside chairs but please bring your own just to be sure.
There are native bees in boxes and European bees in Langstroth hives, the European bees are in a back corner so are out of the way but can be viewed from a safe distance.
The natives are in a garden beside the tank and the house. In the middle of the front yard I have a half dozen small beds with veg, herbs and flowers intermingled.
Along the fence lines are beds with butterfly, bee and bird food plantings with some fruit and veg for me squeezed in, changes with the seasons.
The back yard has some established fruiting trees, the chook yard, bees and an enormous Jacaranda. At the back door I have a couple of water well type raised gardens with my shallots, herbs and seasonal small veg, eg Asian greens, radish.
I've planted native trees down fence lines for the birds, bees and for privacy.
There are compost tumblers up the backyard and open wire framed compost piles at the side of the driveway, in a back corner I have the pile of branch prunings that I trust will eventually break down.
It is a cottage vaguely permaculture style garden, if something is happy and grows where it is planted that is good if a flower herb or food plant seeds and grows where it wants that is better.
There is a lot of chicken wire used as 'borders' because the chooks and duck free range and anything I want to keep I have to keep them out of.
If you desire comfort, please bring chairs.
Children welcome but must be supervised by their parents at all times.
Please bring a small plate of food or drink to share and any produce, seed, plants that you want to giveaway, swap or sell.
NOTE There will be a young dog on the premises on the day.
Late attendees welcome. Message Lissa or phone on the day for the address.
