Annotation

Charts the evolution of a garden from a derelict paddock to a functioning mini farm.

Publisher Description

Join Marcelle in a tree-change journey and chart the evolution of her garden from a derelict paddock (on a 20 acre hobby farm), to a fully functional potager/vegetable garden including orchard, vegetables, herbs and chickens. The entire project will be based on sustainable practices and include organic solutions - all sympathetic to the heritage of the site and the history of the area. The changes are charted over the course of a year and documented by the author's photography (to capture cool and warm crops). While the book will be a personal journey through the development of thegarden, it also contains practical, step-by-step information to help anyone establish a kitchen garden of their own, whether they have a square metre of soil or half an acre (and more). The book contains the following chapters: Design / Construction and soil improvements / The Orchard / The Vegetables / The Herbs / Maintenance and management.
