In January people had the opportunity to visit my garden as part of Open Gardens Australia’s events, and we had a great response with huge turnout of around 500 people!
I’d like to promoting a colleague’s urban food garden here that has been regularly running open days for Open Gardens Australia and will be open on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 February 2015. It’s an excellent example of an intensive urban food garden, that I can thoroughly recommend visiting!
Here are the details of the event from the Open Gardens Australia – Victoria Calendar page :
Gunyah – Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 February 2015
The inspiring urban food garden of designer Karen Sutherland. More than 200 edible and useful plants are displayed in an ornamental setting: herbs, vegetables, vines, citrus, fruit and nut trees, South American edible species and Australian bush foods. Aquaponics, rooftop garden, bees, chickens. Interesting nature strip plantings.
There’ll be talks on native herbs, bush foods and perennial vegetables at 11am, 1pm and 3pm each day as well as regular guided tours of garden
