Nick Brown

Nick has a suburban property where water is a key feature. Recycled tanks store 6000 litres of rainwater, which flow into a network of swales that weave through a food forest and 12 round garden beds. The beds are gardened using a chook tractor. In a full cycle system, Nick makes compost, germinates his own seedlings, preserves or swaps excess produce, and saves seeds.
