And now, from one side of the country last week to the other side of the world today! Let's visit South Australia, shall we? That's where we find Xan, her two children, and her amazing gardens full of plenty to harvest and nourish now, and such dreams and vision for the future. I especiallly love this line from Xan's website bio and have been thinking about it since I first read it: "We live from scratch as much as sanity allows at this stage and relish any opportunity to 'do it ourselves'." That so perfectly captures the sense I get from visiting Xan's garden, and it's an inspiring sense I know you'll enjoy too.
Welcome to Xan's garden!
Gardener: Xan Holyoak
Adelaide Hills, South Australia. Temperate-Mediterranean climate (at a guess, I'm going to say that it might equate to Zone 10 in the USA).
