SUSTAINABLE BACKYARD FOOD PRODUCTION

Open Garden 2021

Spring is our favourite time of year in the garden, and we want to share it with you.

My Productive Backyard will be open this 2-3 October 2021.

OPEN 10am – 4pm SATURDAY 2nd + SUNDAY 3rd OCTOBER

 

My Productive Backyard will be opening the garden on October 2021 and we are inviting you to join us for a beautiful day in the garden. Get some inspiration for your productive backyard, learn more about growing your own and there will be plenty of plants for sale if you want to grow a little at your place.

The My Productive Backyard team will be on-site on the day to help you with any questions you may have, but we encourage you to take a stroll around the garden yourself to truly experience the space.

We are excited to be welcoming the team from Grind & Brew into the garden for delicious coffee and snacks on the day!

We have a Covid-Safe plan in place to ensure the safety of all our guests and will comply with all NSW State Government Guidelines for safety. Hand sanitiser will be available for guests on-site, and there is plenty of room to spread out in the garden to achieve social distancing.

For groups and garden clubs, we request that you email us at kathy@myproductivebackyard.com.au to let us know you’re coming. You and your group can take a tour of the garden, guided or unguided, and please feel free to bring your questions and ask as many as you would like on the day.

We look forward to seeing you in the garden!

PRICE

$10 entry fee with contactless payment methods available on the day.

CITRUS IN

CONTAINERS

AT HOME

not everyone has the space or the climate to grow citrus in the ground. The answer is often to grow them in a container of some kind.

So if you have limited space, want an attractive productive plant for a balcony or paved area or something that can be moved to access a more favourable microclimate, then growing citrus in pots is the answer.

No-dig gardens are basically a raised garden made up of layers of organic matter that rot down into a nutrient-rich living soil. It is the perfect solution to tough or poor soils and can be created on virtually any surface, be it rocky soil or heavy clay, even over lawn and concrete, and eliminates the need for any backbreaking work.

Learn how to set up your own No-Dig Garden and grow plenty of food for your family!
