5. Heart and Soil

255 Frankley Road, , Ferndale, 4310

Mieke has developed this challenging five-tiered steep sloping garden with minimal sun into a permaculture-designed property.

She has added veggies, a chicken coop, rabbit hutch, worm-farm and rainwater collection. It has a mix of shade loving fruit & veggies, a mix of native and subtropical plants. There’s also a secret garden including a huge loquat, bananas, apples and pawpaw.

Visit the Taranaki Sustainable Backyards Trail website to for full details on opening times, talks and tours.
