We started at the Albert Street garden where Patrick gave a brief account of how the garden got established before moving on to Jasmin and Adrian's lovely sun-trapping garden, which is beautifully set out with much space for children to play due to the space saving designs using espalier fruit trees along some boundary fencing and in front of north-facing shed walls.
We then walked on to Scotty and Alison's lovely wild backyard garden, one of the most productive in the town and one that is very easy to maintain. It is a great example of a carefree food garden with established fruit trees that produce mountains of fruit each year.
We finished our walk at Meg and Patrick's which, like the previous two gardens, was well endowed with poultry, compost systems and perennial and annual food crops.
Thanks to everyone who came along to share experiences and knowledges about growing food. Don't forget the working bee next Saturday 9th June at 10am at the Albert St garden.
