Over 17 years, Agi has developed her 660 sq metre (0.16 acre) suburban block into a permaculture inspired oasis with every nook and cranny occupied by productive plants, animals, or permaculture infrastructure. This extends from the nature strip out the front, down the sides and all the way to the back fence.
Agi does a lot of preserving, pickling, dehydrating, and freezing to have a continuous supply of home produce. She has chooks and guinea pigs that contribute fertiliser and pest/weed control. Several water tanks are strategically placed around the house and carport to harvest water for the garden and flush the toilet. Solar panels, composting, and recycling are part of her strategy to leave a “lighter footprint” on the Earth.
