Being a 5 minute gardener is tough, because that's about how long we get to contribute our part of our relationship with nature on a day to day basis, so this calendar is a consolidation of the activities required to support a successful home food production system, one that grows sufficient clean food to support good health.

These observations are from my Lemnian ancestry; the lunar month has distinct sectors, Levity, Gravity and the Void, 3 sectors of 10 days to get the associated jobs related to each of the sectors done, this is how a 5 minute gardener keeps up.

This growing guide is brought to your by the Farmers Choice Organics Foundation. We support our organic growers with seeds, seedlings, herbs, fruit trees, bird and bee attracting plants.

Because of production size constraints of the Wollumbin street nursery site, and the community demand that has grown exponentially these past 5 years through that tiny growing space, Farmer's Choice has decided to expanded to best support the food growing needs our communities.

This means Farmer's Choice seedlings are back on the farm, they're now being grown in our Biodynamic nursery set in the beautiful rolling hills of the Tweed valley.

Now whenever you want our farm fresh organic seedlings when shopping in Murwillumbah you simply go across the street and select them from our stands at Budds Mitre 10 where Julie, Laurence and the team are available to assist you with all your seedlings, plants and growing requirements.

Available at:

  • Budd’s Mitre 10 Murwillumbah
  • Mullumbimby Rural Co-op.
  • Santos Mullumbimby
  • Mullumbimby Herbals
  • Eden @ Byron Garden Centre
  • ON SATURDAYS @ Burleigh State School
