Taranaki Garden Festival

16. Viv's Garden

18 Halse Place, Ōpunake, 4616

Viv and Rob weave creativity and sustainability into their 1 acre urban farmlet. Explore organic, no dig and lasagne garden beds, as well as orchards, a food forest and natives. Learn about companion planting, ducks and chickens, DIY fertilisers, windbreaks, rainwater harvesting and irrigation, solar power and storage, predator control, compostable toilets, and soil recovery.

Harvest provides food but also dye and fibres for cordage, paper making and basketry.
