Food Gardening

We collaborate with Brisbane permaculture business All You Can Eat Gardens to develop and maintain food gardens for clients in the area, according to principles of permaculture. Director Tim Auld is an alumnus of our favourite local permaculture hotspot, Northey Street City Farm, and a regular guest teacher there. Tim and our other friends from City Farm are also supporters of our own community food-growing project at Murri school.
