Coburg secret garden
Feb 9 @ 10:00 – 11:00

The tour will take place three times, at 10am, midday and 2pm.

Two years ago, Alanjohn and Zena moved into their rental with the intention of demonstrating that this form of living doesn’t prevent you from utilising your space. They formed a Memorandum of Understanding with the owners and focused on keeping costs down and re-purposing materials. This tour will focus on demonstrating, not only what can be grown in a suburban rental plot, but how tastefully a grass lawn can be transformed into a fully functioning urban farm.

Greg’s garden – productive and organic backyard
Feb 9 @ 10:00 – 11:00

The tour will take place three times, at 10am, midday and 2pm.

When Greg moved into the property in 2014, the backyard (around a quarter of an acre) was completely neglected. He saw the potential to exercise his green thumb and expand his passion for growing plants and vegetables. Today, the garden is an oasis full of natives, exotic and colourful plant varieties, as well as a thriving edible landscape. Greg draws on a vast array of new and traditional farming techniques to optimise soil health and create a diverse ecosystem.
