Open Garden- Edible Eden

My friends Kate and Michael have opened their garden this weekend as part of the Darwin “Open Garden Scheme” at their family home. Their house is in my suburb of Alawa and show cases so well what you can do on a (large) suburban block. The house is an old school ground floor government brick house common in the suburbs and show cases the wonders of mulch and veggie growing.

The garden is open again tomorrow 10- 4.30 and is really worth a look if you want inspiration for a productive garden. It is also right near the Lakeside Drive Community Garden- so you could also check that out too and there is a garden gathering there tomorrow.
