Zofia’s garden system is almost fully sustainable, generating her own electricity through solar panels as well as harvesting water from three water tanks with a capacity of 10,000 litres. Chickens lay eggs, provide manure and rework the compost from kitchen waste, leaves & lawn cuttings. There’s a worm farm and ponds for edible water plants and beneficial insects and frogs that control mosquitoes. She has bee hives for pollination and honey.

In this garden there are espaliered trees such as apples, lime, pears as well as other fruit trees - apricot, avocado, nectarine and lemon.

Zofia has an extensive vegetable garden with raised beds at the back and no-dig beds in the front. She is now able to live off the vegetable produce in her garden and has eggs in abundance. 

Zofia’a infrastructure (fences, archways, borders, outdoor furniture etc.) is made up of discarded items found on demolition sites and hard rubbish. She loves the aesthetics of reusing found materials in different ways – saving them from being destroyed and giving them new life.

Some of the proceeds from this opening will be donated to The Ashwood Permaculture Garden.

There's a lovely write up on The Edible Garden in Local Food Connect.

The Edible Garden is located on the lands of the Wurundjeri people. Open Gardens Victoria wish to acknowledge the Traditional custodians and we pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
