Lillico Garden

Updated: Dec 28, 2019

The Lillico Garden is an acre and a half of paradise. Rich, red

volcanic soil make for excellent growing conditions. Within the

established orchard there are over fifty nut and fruit trees including

olives, hazelnuts, peaches, apples, pears, plums, apricots and

more.  An extensive kitchen garden provides the household with

seasonal vegetables and herbs all year round. Excess produce is

preserved in a variety of methods – dried, brined, jammed and

salted. Free range chooks give eggs and also provide valuable

manure for the compost bins and garden. The cycle of composting

and worm farming continually give back to the gardens. Within the

property there is a small forested area created as a habitat for

native species; it includes two small ponds for frogs.

Visit The Lillico Garden during Creative Harvest 2020. It's also part of the Sunday bus tour.
