Popular amongst locals is the CH James Edible Courtyard Garden. Our garden is relaxing, almost therapeutic, complementing the attractive indoor space at CH James. Indoor and outdoor come together seamlessly. Come through the side entrance or walk through the indoor space which looks out to the garden...
Check out our courtyard, enjoy excellent food and drink, and take in the garden ambience. Attractive planter boxes set the scene. We employed the services of leading Melbourne garden service Leaf, Root & Fruit to set up and maintain our edible courtyard garden. Here they are setting up the planter boxes with beautiful plants and choice soil. Daniel is an expert on all things contemporary edible gardens!
The planter boxes are large, with an array of edibles suitable for our kitchen. We've also set up planter boxes along the side of the adjacent church, and the produce is thriving.
As summer has moved into full swing, we received our first tomatoes, chillies, lettuce and herbs...
These planter boxes produce a surprising amount of fresh produce!
The edible garden is well planned and visually attractive...
Leaf, Root and Fruit are true professionals. Says their website -
"Leaf, Root & Fruit are your local, edible garden specialists. We assist people to grow their own food. Based in Hawthorn East, we offer gardening services to support food production in front and backyards, veggie patches, balconies and courtyard gardens all over Melbourne.
Committed to reducing the impact of modern living on the environment, we actively promote a sustainable and organic approach to producing food. Having your own edible garden provides you with fruit, veggies and herbs that are tastier, healthier and better quality than what’s on offer at your local supermarket. They will be fully sustainable, cheaper and more convenient.
We believe that everyone should have access to a productive gardening space. We can tailor the perfectly designed, raised veggie garden bed that allows you to garden comfortably whilst standing or sitting. We provide support to anyone with mobility issues to get back into the garden and rediscover their passion for gardening.
We practice sustainable, up-cycling of materials and organic gardening."
