Three years have seen lots of changes in the garden and in our lives.

We have added more beds to the home garden and now have two plots at the Happy Patch Community Garden.

Plants have infiltrated the house.

We continue to have a variety of creatures visit the garden.

Jamie went from working part-time to working two jobs and I have received a promotion – hence the dearth of blogs these past few months. It also means the garden is not as prolific as it has been in past years.

We joined the organising committee of the amazing Seed Freedom Food Festival in 2015 and 2016.

About A Kailyard in Adelaide

A Kailyard in Adelaide! We are working hard to be domestically sustainable in the foothills of Adelaide. As we both work fulltime this is not an easy task, but we do our best growing much of our own produce in our yard and in our community garden plots. We reduce, recycle and reuse as much as possible and try hard to not consume mindlessly. We have 5000 l of rainwater, a 5 kw solar system, and use a green energy provider for all our excess needs. Rachel: Mother, partner, teacher, writer, reader, crafter, cook, gardener, artist. Jamie: Father, partner, lecturer, therapist, would-be-politician, gardener, photographer, music lover.
