AOGC - Hawk Lane Organic Gardens (Pomona) - 16 & 17 April 2011

“The gardens were set up with the vision of creating an abundant food forest together with a strong focus on habitat creation, especially for native birds and frogs. When we moved to this land in 2002 it was 95% clear land except for the house, large dam and large Eucalyptus trees. We immediately commenced working on the gardens.” Sean Morrow 2011.
