The property is 4000 square metres altogether (1 acre) situated in central New Plymouth. It was purchased in January 2016 and was a former rose garden, with a small orchard and vege garden. It has a 1000 square metre bush block.
After cutting down 16 huge weedy trees, and removing 600 rose bushes, the property is still undergoing its transformation into a productive foodscape with food forest, annual and perennial beds and a garden design that will be waterwise, low maintenance and abundant.
The small nursery propagates nearly all of the plants needed to start the guilds and groundcovers for a food forest garden. I also sell trees, productive and useful plants for home gardens through to permaculture food forests.
