All You Can Eat Gardens
All You Can Eat Gardens was conceived in late 2009 by a small group of students at Northey Street City Farm, keen to design, build and maintain productive urban and suburban gardens in Brisbane. Tim and Andy followed through in early 2010 where the business was formed as a partnership. All You Can Eat Gardens provides a comprehensive and flexible service: consultation, concept, design, quote, installation, supply and maintenance. Past clients have received abundant organic vegetables and herbs, raised garden beds, fruit trees, chickens, beautiful ponds full of edible plants and fish, container gardens, rainwater tanks, irrigation systems, landscaped paths, rainwater harvesting earth works, paving and drainage systems. Based in the South-western suburbs, we're always up for a challenge!

Linda has been designing and teaching accredited courses in permaculture for 2 decades. She has been creating productive and beautiful gardens that provide people, animals and plants with safe, secure and supportive communities since 1991. Some of the gardens have been tiny balconies, providing a plateful of food a day for one or two people. Others have been big commercial gardens, growing food for restaurants and whole communities. Many are flourishing gardens in the city and suburbs that give health, wellbeing and lots of food for the families that tend them. Linda also gives talks and runs courses, and eco education for professionals in the horticulture and education industries as well as talks and gardening workshops for adults and children. With one of Linda's personalized permaculture garden designs and a maintenance handbook of your own, you’ll be inspired to create wonderful productive and adventurous gardens that are easy to care for, exciting to plan and that you’ll love to spend time in. Best of all, you’ll be able to eat from your garden at every meal and if you have children, they’ll really get a buzz out of their new edible play space! You can tap into over 20 years experience in horticulture, garden design, organics and sustainability, and qualifications in environmental education, horticulture, landscape design, permaculture design and education and organic agriculture. You can also catch up with Linda in her articles on permaculture, organics and food enjoyment in a range of publications and a weekly column in the Westside news.
