Gado Gado, a country property of 27 acres has a rambling mixed
orchard of over 20 trees and an organic vegetable garden with a
hothouse. Chooks free range about the garden but are excluded
from the vegetable patch, which supplies most of the food needs
throughout the year. Excess fruit is bottled and there is always
plenty of it.
Fertiliser is applied in liquid form (chicken manure), as compost
and as a mulch (horse manure). A recent addition to the garden is
two bee hives.
A 5 acre patch of bush has been restored with indigenous plants
over the last 20 years - unfortunately this is starting to encroach on
the vegetable garden! The house garden is a mixture of native
and non-native plants, and includes a large rose garden. Many of
the native plants were grown from seed. The property is watered
from a farm dam.
Visit Gado Gado during Creative Harvest, January 18-19th 2020.
This garden is also part of the Sunday bus tour.
