June Open Garden at Bellis (Jerry Colbey-Wiliams) and Northey Street City Farm

The Queensland presenter for Gardening Australia, Jerry Colbey-Williams, has invited us to tour Bellis, his productive house and garden in Wynnum. This is a unique opportunity to see this amazing garden and learn from a master gardener. 20 years ago Jerry and his partner purchased Bellis, an old queenslander on a 800 m2 block in suburban Wynnum.  It has been transformed from a contaminated, uninspiring turf yard into an organic food forest.

In what will be both an entertaining and educational experience Jerry will take us on a tour of his garden and explain how his demonstration home:

  • Retains and uses all rainwater that falls on the site
  • Treats and utilises all of its waste water
  • Produces all of its own electricity
  • Produces most of their food requirements
  • Generates a healthy income

On the way home we will stop for a tour of Northey Street City Farm.
