A beautiful organic house and garden for sale

Well, after all this time we have found a lovely acreage propoerty. That means that our home and garden in Wishart is on the market. Lots of people from the workshops and garden visits asked to be told if i ever sold the house, cos they'd love a ready made organic garden. Well, this is your chance.

Here is the link. The price is somewhat negotiable. You'll love 168 + different edible and useful plants in the garden with a whole vegie patch ready to harvest in the coming months. We already save at least $25-30 per week on groceries as we pick straight from the back yard. Anyway, would love to sell it to a person who will love it as much as we do.

Thanks Bron and Scarlett. You are sooo comforting, both of you. And Andrew yes, we went through the comments about 15 years ago from family and others who said that why would we convert to organic and why on earth would we have a garden that was almost lawn free  and grow vegies instead??? Our garden has given us so much pleasure and bountiful health. We eat from it daily, we have been able to treat sore throats, sore muscles, gut issues and by getting our hands into the warm earth we have felt the healing nature of really relaxing together with the earth. It has been a beautiful family place, with delightful friends all along the street. I've also run lots of organic workshops from here and I hope i am safe to say that people love coming here and enjoy coming back!

By the way Bron I think your place looks gorgeous too! How did you set up that lovely page? I'd like to emulate your sheer artistic cleverness.

We were offered substantially less for our place by people who wanted to remove the garden - we waited just a bit longer and someone came along who wanted to know if the chook house came with the house :) I gather it's rented now - but the rental contract includes a garden contractor! 

Good luck Linda, and acreage sounds brilliant

However, they do say how easy it would be to turf over the garden again.  This my friends is the brutal reality of selling.  I'm planning the larger lawned side of my yard now (the small side already has a nice raised vege patch).  I am trying to do it in a way that is easy to remove.  Yes, it breaks our hearts, but it is a commercial reality.  Linda - just focus on your acreaage.  Imagine what you'll be able to do.  I am very jealous.

Best of luck Linda, hope it sells quickly for you. They don't even mention your plantings in the ad.
