Dee Humphreys has spent the past thirteen years exploring practical uses for a range of herbs and weeds that grow easily on the Sunshine Coast. Dee and Ian ran the “ Garden of Eatin”, a magical 10 acres of edible gardens where they taught people through educational Garden Tours. The focus was on eating what they and Mother Nature grew (edible greens).
Three years ago Dee and Ian moved to a suburban block in Noosa (592 square metres) and set about planting an abundant edible garden in the small space around their home while respecting Mother Nature’s useful and often nutritious weed contributions. Within 2 months they were harvesting ‘green goodies’ from their 11 raised garden beds, 2 lowest gardens and the guilds planted around their 59 new fruit trees. All this within the small space around their home.
Eating nutritious herbs and weeds from their garden ( all things ‘ green’) is Dee’s passion and she is always happy to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for edible greens.
