Garden Plans > 2011: Kalgoorlie St Front Vegie Garden

About this Garden Plan

This is a garden of firsts: the first serious vegetable garden I have attempted, the first time I've attempted organic methods and the first permaculture-influenced design I've done. It is a rental property so I'm probably mad to have spent so much time, energy and money on it but, what the hell, I'm inspired! And I can't wait till summer when the fruit of my labour starts to fruit!
