During the current crisis there has been increased interest around backyard food gardens, keeping chickens and generally increasing personal, household and community resilience. We hope some good can come of this crisis and we can come out the other side with new skills that we take forward to create a better world.
If you are at home with extra time to contemplate a garden but don’t know where to start, we can help! Our Zero Waste Manager has over 8 years experience designing and implementing practical backyard permaculture solutions and we are currently offering the following services:
What the Garden Design consultation includes:
- You complete an initial online survey so we can get to know you. We will get information on your site, your needs and wants and any awesome ideas you have!
- You take us on a 45-minute tour of your site. We’ll consider your space and then provide advice on where to set up basic garden elements including fruit and veggie growing, chooks, compost, worm farms and rainwater tanks etc. We will then discuss an implementation plan with you, so you know where best to put your energy, and give you advice on any problem areas, like pest control and weeds.
- We then provide a follow up report outlining the implementation steps to get you up and growing as quick as possible.
- Lastly, we have a phone chat to go through any questions you have to make sure you’ve got all the information you need to turn your space into a productive and happy space.
If you pretty much have your garden together but would like some help with a particular project or difficult task, we are available by phone, video or in person to talk you through specific questions you have or guide you through a step by step implementation plan to building your garden.
Our consultations also include…
Each customer will also receive our up and growing guide which outlines the basics for growing fruit and veggies, caring for chickens, water harvesting and making great compost.
