On the ground




Lisa and her family have a special vision for a sustainable recovery - they want to grow as much of their food as possible at home.


Lisa has worked with a group called "Edible Gardens" who have helped the family to design a plan for a garden that delivers just what they like in tune with seasons and the landscape of the block.


This terrific advice is available at affordable rates.  


When the garden is up and running we will visit Lisa to see just how wonderful it is to reduce weekly shopping trips, eat delicious food, save money and enjoy growing your own food.


In the meantime, listen to what Lisa aims to achieve to build local food sustainability in Kinglake.
