Garden description: Our garden is in sunny Hawkes Bay. It is on a gentle slope facing north. It is organic and based on low maintenace permaculture principles. I have 'crop circles' ( round gardens built with the no dig method). I use chicken tractoring to do all the maintenace. My chickens go on to each crop circle and eat the left over veges, pests, create manure, till and create a rich mulch. I throw them our lawn clippings and kitchen scraps. This systems creates a self supporting systems based on nature.

Our Three boys forage in the garden for after school snacks and help me plant seeds and round up the chickens.

I am a landscape architect with a passion for permaculture. I run backyard organics and keeping chickens workshops from our home garden.
