Campus Gardening

A recent photo of my campus organic garden (looking slightly shabby here). Members of the Sustainability Learning Community here are harvesting peas and tomatoes before preparing the beds for autumn seedlings.

The Canberra Environment Centre, a local NGO, has just moved in next door to our garden. One of my master's research supervisors is the director and together and we've put in a proposal to create permaculture gardens around the rest of the site and to acquire rainwater tanks. The idea is to make the whole block into a Sustainable Living Precinct. We'll have the Environment Centre with its resource library and workshops, the SLC garden, permaculture gardens, rain catchment systems, and the ANU bike coop. Neat eh?


  1. I like the rain catchment area concept.
