Aweganic Gardens, Organic Food & Permaculture in Darwin
Aweganic Gardens is a special organic garden in Darwin from which health giving permaculture food can be obtained.
This is the project of someone my community garden hold very dear.
The derivation of the name of this project is clear when you read the quote in this photo from the the philosopher Emerson.
From what was a bare plot of ground permaculture methods have been used to create an abundance of health giving foods.
These new foods can be sourced at Aweganic Gardens, and local markets and shops.
Permaculture methods have been applied to create both variety and abundance in the seasonal Darwin conditions.
The recent rainy season saw the swales doing a magnificent job dispersing heavy rains and allowing the crops to not only survive but to prosper in what were at times cyclonic conditions.
With Global Warming creating a need for new ways to look at our food sources Aweganic Gardens is showing us the way towards a secure and rich food future.
