COOK

It is such an amazing feeling to plant a seed, see it germinate, protect and nurture it as it grows into a plant, then harvest perfectly ripe produce from it. Being able to cook your homegrown produce and serve delicious fresh food to your family, or preserve it for eating in the future, is the ultimate expefience.

In these guides, we will gain the knowledge and learn the essential skills to create your vegetable, herb and fruit gardens.

  • You can design your own layout, optimising the space you have, to achieve your goals
  • You will decide what type of garden bed suits you and your space, and how to condition the soil in them
  • Learn how to plant your seeds or seedlings, as well as raising your own seedlings, and seed saving when the times comes
  • Troubleshoot pests, diseases and other issues
  • Understand when, and how, to harvest

Most importantly, let’s get motivated to take action and get started. If your dreams are big, but your budget, time or space is small, start with a simple set up. Instead of getting overwhelmed by getting the perfect set up from the start, take imperfect action and learn as you go. Before we built our four large wicking garden beds, we started by converting a dodgy garden bed that held scraggly natives, and literally threw in a bunch of mixed seed. We grew in pots, and learnt about the existing fruit trees. Step by step we built our urban homestead, over several years.
