January 2014 event: Sunnybrook Farm Garden Visit

Today at Slow Food Waitakere we visited James Brookman and Rebecca Russo's inspiring garden in Sunnybrook Farm, Clevedon. We had a wonderful time touring the extensive veggie garden and the fruit orchard, seeing the compost heaps, and meeting the cute goats. Thank you very much James and Rebecca for opening your garden for us, this was our first event for 2014 and it will inspire us for our own gardens, and to work towards more involvement in the local community gardens. Here are some images:

And after the garden tour we went to nearby Clevedon Farmers Market for shopping and eating.

The raised garden beds and climbing structures were an inspiration. Thanks so much Sunnybrook Farm.
