The property is 4000 square metres (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 nursery has been started to propagate nearly all of the plants needed for the forest and garden, as well as trees and productive and useful plants for home gardens to permaculture food forests for sale.
