I live on a 900sq m block. The house is biggish, as we had a big family, most of whom have left home. The gardens were more or less tacked on by the previous owners after the house and various landscaping features were finished, so no chance to do the permaculture thing, but gradually a food garden is taking shape. My background is in revegetation, volunteer management, and growing and selling local native plants, but I am a total convert to the idea of producing as much of our own food as possible. Fruit trees - in ground and in pots - are a particular enthusiasm, and I like to preserve my own and purchased produce.
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:
Rode-Chermside garden club
I am interested in:
Permaculture, growing my own food, preserving the produce. I would like to see other peoples' gardens, and
join in discussions to learn as much as possible about the ins and outs of growing food. Happy to share bits and pieces of whatever I've got growing, and whatever knowledge I have accumulated over the years.
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
