June Meeting

IMG_2598Denis sent me a copy of these photos from the June L2L meeting at Bill and Colleen’s place.

Situated on a very well maintained 3 acres in Barmaryee, Bill and Colleen have been working on their own little patch of paradise for the last few years.

Bill has been experimenting with wicking beds over the past year and has a number of very large and highly productive systems in place.

In addition to the wicking beds there is an aquaponic system installed with several Jade perch and a grove of different fruit trees.

Bill makes use of free mulch from the council and says that it has gone a long way to improving the quality of the garden.

Another main attraction is the beautiful wood fired oven that Bill built and which gave us a wonderful pizza lunch on the day.


I also liked the flock of different chicken varieties with their iridescent plumage, there was a mix of game birds and more common domestic birds.
