Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
We have 20 acres of mainly native bush, and a veggie garden of about 20 x 20 metres, about 20 fruit trees including a subtropical orchard where the chooks live. The house has espaliered fruit trees that we are learning to prune and train. We are organically certified through OFNZ. I know what Wwoofing is but what is a WWOOFA? I am keen to learn about what others are doing in the way of urban permaculture.

We met years ago when I attended a permaculture workshop you ran at Unitech.
I have been working in the South Island for the last 7 years or so and got very involved in Organic Horticulture for a time.
I now run my own Landscape Architecture practice out of Albany which I have recently shifted here from the South island.
I'd be keen to connect, perhaps visit your property at a convenient time (be great to see some permaculture in action) and say hi, but also attend one session of your upcoming workshop series - the one on improving clay soils. I could use some upskilling in that.
I don't know if its ok to attend one session but I was hoping you might make an exception for me.
Hi Betsy, welcome to Ooooby. This is such a great site and l have made many contacts though it. My garden is coming along and l am nearly at the end of the creation of my beds. l now also have 7 bantam chooks which l am really enjoying.
