One Thousand Incredible Edible Gardens


One Thousand Incredible Edible Gardens

Nancy Kent and Pia Dowling have come together for past 18 months in collaboration to create a program that incorporates the best practice of urban food growing and herb growing that we have personally discovered in our thirty plus combined years experience. We want you to have access to organic super-foods in your own garden or balcony garden.

At our half day workshops which run throughout the year, Nancy will share with you just what you need to know to start your own garden, without being overwhelmed by too much information. Peer is now focusing her work in Sunshine Coast Area. The program will continue from April 2016 to August 2016. the second Saturday of every month. Please register interest and info will be sent to you - by Email:

The plant pictured is called Surinam Spinach. Its delightful taste is suitable for salads and stir fried food. Originates from the Phillipines and florishes here in our Sun Tropical Environment as a Perennial. It does not suffer in excessive heat nor from a dry patch. It spreads beautifully in your garden bed, however is not invasive at all. It is happiest if it has some shade, though mine gets plenty of sun and not much shade at all. Surinam spinach has bright green, slightly tangy, crunchy leaves and dainty pink flowers. It is related to purslane and so contains oxalic acid and is ornamental enough to use in a flower garden which is why I particularly love this vegetable. I really appreciate the beauty adn form of a variety of plants growing in harmony together.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
