‘The Plummery’ is a 1/14th acre (280m2) urban permaculture system in Melbourne, Australia. In 2018, the garden produced 428kg of herbs, vegies, fruit and eggs with about 4 hours management each week – enough to feed 2 adults and regular guests most of their fresh produce! The site features a vegetable and herb garden, food forest, deep litter quail aviary, light earth studio, and an old weatherboard house with a slow-combustion wood stove, compost toilet, pantry and many other retrofits for comfort and sustainability.
I run regular private tours for community groups, students and landscape management and design professionals. Public tours are usually arranged through City of Darebin, Open Gardens Victoria and 3000acres.
