Vegetable Garden Consultations
What are the benefits of a garden consultation?
In May 2016 Stephanie contacted us to help her establish a kitchen garden. Stephanie and her husband had recently relocated from Sydney to take over the family farm. For the majority of their married life they have lived in apartments or units and Stephanie has never really had an opportunity to establish any sort of garden.
Their residence on the farm is a small workers cottage in a bare paddock. We explored their location, discussed expectations, knowledge base and out of this developed a garden plan, including basic information about soil care, plant care and so on. We also encouraged Stephanie to attend our all season cool climate vegetable gardening workshop in July.
Stephanie came to the workshop and since then has been participating in our learn work exchange program for 3 hours a week.
