Why am I doing this?Well as a young family currently on a single income we are really starting to watch where our money goes.
How I am doing this?We’re often sharing produce between the family as well. I am including what we’re gifted, the way I see it, the more you can encourage your extended family or friends to grow their own food the more you can save just by sharing. Pricing wise I am comparing to current local organic prices, or if I can’t find organic I just find the regular price.
How much space do we have?We don’t have acreage, this is an average suburban block (approx 600sqm) that we rent so we can’t even rip up the lawn to make space for more garden so we’re growing with temporary raised garden beds and aquaponics systems which consists of the following amount of space:
- 6sqm of raised garden beds (4 beds)
- 3.6sqm of aquaponics grow beds (3 beds)
