This medium sized Mediterranean garden is divided into several “rooms”.

At the front is a small, formal, open area. Then around the back is a lovely cool area, actually at least three areas where the owners and friends can sit and enjoy the ambience of water and the visiting birds. Sitting here one can enjoy the smell of a pizza, view the changing seasons of the walnut tree or the winter fruiting citrus. This is also quite an international space!!

Further on, winding paths lead through the raised veggie plots and more productive fruit trees such as fig, apple and guava and many more. At the back, the owner is trialling a special purslane plant which is grown by seed. The leaves, which can be used as a salad item, contain vitamin C, omega 3, and a special acid which apparently helps to lower cholesterol, among other health benefits.

Onto the next area, passing some succulents in pots, is the worm farm.

Further on, more productive veggie gardens and trees, such as the white sapote which helps to shade the chooks.

The many rooms of this well-maintained garden show that it is home to passionate, generous gardeners.

Extra activities: Talk at 2pm on purslane and worm farms.

Watch out for: Small water features.
