Come to POW's very own open garden scheme! This month, we'll be visiting Michelle's backyard in Seddon to see how much can be fit into a very small space using sustainable materials and permaculture know-how!
Over the past year or so, Michelle has been 'apprenticing' with Kris Patten (horticulturalist, permaculture enthusiast and designer, and farm boy – also one of the founding members of the Werribee Park Heritage Orchard) to create a compact productive garden that makes the most of companion planting and microclimates within microclimates. You'll find recycled materials used to create a rustic garden which – together with wicking and other pots – house 8 fruit trees, 7 varieties of berries, myriad vegetables, herbs and flowers – all within a space about the size of a living room!
Bring a plate and a drink of something you like. Places are limited so book early at https://pow-yimby-nov2014.eventbrite.com.au/!
