Offering landshare at Mount Nathan

Upon returning to Australia last July I decided to return to university studies (Master of Environmental Management) and concentrate on developing my own property.  Hopefully we can create a demonstration site here over the next few years.

I had already put in swales and built some gardens before leaving for Vietnam but these were over run and destroyed by rampaging chickens while I was away. It is tough going here, lots to do with just one person to do it (me!).  The gorund is rock and clay, which seems to suit a lot of native vegetation but hard to get fruit trees and edibles growing.  Apart from the fact that I am also the worlds worst gardener!

So, with time and effort I hope that we can build something here to inspire others in the area to do the same.  I am going to open up the property to 'land share' as I have plenty of space here and I'm sure there are people in the region that do not have the space to grow their own food.  There are a few community gardens around but plots are limited so given that I have all this land I'd like to help those who are not so fortunate or who's circumstances preclude them from being able to build their own gardens.

Feel free to contact me if you or someone you know is interested in setting up a garden here.

Carolyn Payne-Gemmell : This is an excellent idea Marty,needed everywhere. I have been toying with the thought myself, there are small community garden plots around here but people really need big allotments to make a small living from or feed an extended family. What size plots are you thinking of offering?
