OPEN FOR THE FIRST TIME TO THE PUBLIC
The Reclaimed Edible Oasis is a beautiful, garden oasis designed for the elements. The location, in a dry bush fire zone on unforgiving shale, has informed choices, from access, structures using interesting reclaimed materials, to plants. Raised vegetable beds, shade structure, fruit trees, interesting perennials, a passionfruit arbour, chilli beds and more, are on display. This garden is a story of creation, working with the space for safety, abundance and the forming of an oasis.
