Thank you to all the visitors and the volunteers who worked to make this fantastic event happen, which also raised funds for the West Brunswick Community Garden projects.
This was the last public open garden at Gunyah, after more than 8 years of these. The talks and tours of the garden showcased the vast range of edible and useful plants: herbs, vegetable, vines, citrus, fruit and nut trees, South American edible species and Australian native food plants. Visitors to the 13m x 35m garden also saw the aquaponics, rooftop bees on ‘bee TV’, met the chickens and quails and were inspired by the nature strip plantings.
The rare edible and productive plants in the nursery area almost sold out, the remaining plants are for sale at the wonderful Bulleen Art and Garden Centre, so if you missed out on a Fragola grape or Old Man Salt Bush plant you know where to visit! We are developing a small online nursery, so look out for news of our rare plants such as the popular Dittany of Crete for sale in the future.
Sales of our honey from our rooftop bees were brisk, as were the Compots, which are available here on our online store, as are our new wall garden pots.
Special offer: At the Open Garden, every Tomato book purchased came with a packet of seeds from the Dwarf Tomato Project, one of the four brand new varieties available. We are continuing this offer for a little longer. purchase signed book here
