It has been a while in coming, so here is this weeks podcast which just features my good self, talking about what I considered before I designed my food garden. I hope you enjoy my chattering.

I’m doin’ it.
I’ve recently started growing our own vegies as we’ve moved into our own home at last…..yippee,yippee….
Everything you’ve said is gold for people like us, just starting out.
It’s all back to basics really…..but the proof will be weather or not our vegies are edible come time to harvest??? ha…
Anyway we’re having a whole lot of fun doing it. My kids love it.
My husband has finally got his worm farm happening.
I’ve now got three chickens which are stocking our fridge nicely.
I’ve started growing tomatoes and all different sorts of veg. in containers everywhere, (even around my pool), noone’s using it anyway – It’s winter!!!! That’s my story anyway….
We make our own soap and bath products and teach other people how to do it….
I have started using Bicarb Soda and Vinegar in our washing…..and it works wonders.
It really is surprising just what you can do….saving money in the long run and doing our bit to help our environment. It just makes you feel good too. Time out in your garden is the best medicine I know after a hectic work week.
It’s invaluble ‘family time’.
It teaches our kids what’s good in life too…MAGIC
I encourage every family to have a go at this, it’s not hard to make these little changes in your life…. permaculture is about doing it on a budget, over time.
My family loves it !!!!
I can’t wait to get our vegie patch happening….I am a serious addict.
I will apply the no dig method as well and build my garden beds up, so there is no bending…….I love it.
I also have joined a sustainable living group in brisbane called
“Northey Street City Farm” – this is where you can go, become a member if you like and most importantly of all meet, learn and share with people of similar interest. The site is loaded with information and a blog that you can learn and participate in discussions of interest regarding things of interest to everyone. For people living in South East Queensland it’s a must place to visit and be inspired on permaculture principles.
Their websites for people to check out – http://www.nscf.org.au/
Also – http://brisbanelocalfood.ning.com/
These sites are loaded with info.
Cheers….and happy gardening…..Yvonne.
