Open Garden Weekend. Just a little tired-but what fun!

It’s done & dusted! The girls are very happy to be allowed out again after being in solitary confinement for 3 weeks. They went straight to their favourite dust bath location even though they have dust bath access in their chook mahal.


What a beautiful weekend! We had an extremely successful open food garden weekend and met the most amazing, lovely and wonderful people to boot! I know gardeners are a generous lot, but I wasn’t quite prepared for the simple pleasure of just talking to nice people. Sensational!

I knew in my mind I was happy with the way the garden is developing but the feedback we got from our visitors was very humbling and validated all the work we have done. We do what we do because Mr ATMT loves designing spaces and I love growing food. The two work well together and being able to share ideas and also exchanging ideas from our visitors was extremely rewarding.

We had approximately 120 people through the gates, most unknown to us beforehand, some old friends and now, some new friends. Excitedly I got to meet 3 of my blog followers  which was very sensational (more about that in a later post).


Not a lot of photos taken but I believe there are some coming from the official Gardivalia photographer. I hope they tell a good story!

I haven’t felt this satisfied in years. We have met some beautiful people, networked for a whole range of different things and worked on some valuable bartering concepts. Love it!

Thank you to everyone who visited this weekend, to the Gardivalia committee and especially to the Baw Baw Sustainability Network (Yay Wendy!) for their support and encouragement and mostly for the wonderful helpers they (BBSN) provided to man the gate. Great helpers and some good laughs, I hope they enjoyed their time with us as well.

Would we do it again next year. Dead right we would!
