This year my small plot summer garden, full of beans, corn and tomatoes was decimated by Cyclone Gabrielle’s high winds and incessant rain. Anything left standing in the mud was consumed by army worms the following month (HM July 10).
Changes in the patterns of temperature, precipitation and carbon concentrations are increasing noticeably and the climate chaos and unseasonal weather has completely changed my gardening practices.
As a result, we have built a small-scale protected gardening environment, which will ensure our home garden plot produces the necessary vegetables regardless of adverse weather, pests, or the season.
Laserlite, which is designed to withstand harmful UV rays, rain and hailstones, was the ideal material for covering the roof and sides, while a heavy grade recycled plastic framed in the bottom and was used, along with tin, to form the raised gardening beds. ... Read more
Dee has been involved in establishing Community Gardens and Backyard Community Gardens. One of the best examples of Dee's work is the Epsom Community Garden.
The Nile Rd Backyard Community Garden has become a real food paradise for its 80+ owners.
Dee has been busy as the Garden to Table gardener at Silverdale School cultivating a healthy garden ecosystem from scratch on an extensive grassy field. With 9 classes of children (and some parent helpers) there are many opportunities and hands on activities to learn how to garden and make the connections between, soil, plants and health.
"My name is Ann Rook, I attended a workshop at Dee Pigneguy's home in Manly, August '21. It was not a workshop it was a LIFE EXPERIENCE with a LEGEND. We spent approx. 5 hours frantically scribbling notes, between laughing and partaking of a great vegetarian lunch with pot luck non processed foods. Morning tea was herbal fresh from the garden.
For those who do not know Dee, she is a lady who has written many books on gardening and the food web. The book Feed Me Right is/was on the school curriculum.
Dee imparts a wealth of information extremely generously. Her home is planted out to capacity and she explains garden micro climates.
Apart from her incredible skill as a gardener and authoress, Dee possesses a rapier wit which given the content of the video below is needed. In the video we see Dee has taken gardening to the next level by showing us all WE THE PEOPLE have the power if WE choose to TRULY do something wonderful for our fellow man, children and Planet Earth. See Video
Go do the workshop, tell all your friends, learn how to save your lives IF heaven forbid food shortages should occur."
With a small team Dee has established a volunteer community garden in Manly and if you are interested you can contact Dee for more information.
