GANUGAN: Permaculture Garden
GANUGAN GARDEN (edible vegetable in Dharawal) is the name of our Permaculture garden at Coniston Public School NSW.
We have begun to harvest and cook with our winter crop of a variety of vegetables. The no-dig garden beds provide a rich soil to grow vegetables. As the materials break down they replenish the soil with spectacular results.We are building soil to enhance our lives, the planet and provide food for our school community.
We have also been raising our own seedlings in the classrooms to add more vegetables and legumes to our garden. We would like to at some stage build a small nursery to be able to raise our own seedlings successfully.
1/2J have been planting out a "Butterfly Garden" with specific edible plants (mostly native) that host butterflies and caterpillars. Some of these plants are Sunrise Lime which is a lime native to Australia pictured below and tastes a bit like a kumquat. Also the Native Mulberry Tree, Emu Apple and Midyiam Berries.... all native to Australia and delicious!
