Leah and Leo’s Garden

Sunday 7 February 2021
1:00pm to 3:00pm
Eltham

Our urban garden is still new: the first beds were built in May 2018, and some parts are still being built. We use permaculture principles and recycled materials where possible, but I believe that a garden can be beautiful as well as useful, so with an artistic background I am creating a haven that feeds both my belly and my soul. It’s a garden full of whimsy including chickens that live in a Tardis, a pool to billabong conversion, and a new possum/bird free cat enclosure.

Dianne & John’s Garden

Sunday 14 February 2021
10:30am to 12:30pm
Eltham

This hillside acre block has been transformed from a paddock into a productive ornamental edible garden over the last 2o+ years. We have established an orchard on a steep rocky slope. Mixed herb and veggie gardens are terraced with bluestone and sleepers. We have natives and deciduous trees, chickens, bees and an array of worm farms. Happy to share a cuppa and chat about the challenges of creating this large bee friendly garden, propagating natives and perennials, what’s worked, what hasn’t.
