The Plan

2017 Garden Plan 
(3rd Edition)


The Garden will provide food for the household year round plus surplus (storage, gifts, sales, etc).  It will produce all vegetables, all eggs, some meat.  It will produce seasonal fruit, habitat for wildlife, and some feed for on site animals.  It will also be a beautiful, tranquil place with areas for relaxation, socialising, and meditation.  It will provide firewood for barbecues, herbs for cooking and minor remedies, and some craft materials (flowers for arrangements, willow for weaving, etc).
