Crystal Castle has an incredible cluster of gardens which Dan and I love to visit, and recently they began growing their own organic produce, and created the Shambhala Organic Food Gardens. In the above photo, part of the food gardens can be seen on the left, and towards the middle of the photo is their banana plantation. Yes, that’s Dan admiring the colossal clear quartz crystal.
These inspiring food gardens have plants which include herbs, vegetables, fruits and beneficial flowers. The gardens are attractive and well designed, and inspired me to put more effort into Dan’s edible garden. Some vegetables that I’d spotted here include potatoes, tomatoes, kale, lettuce, collard greens, zucchini.
I also love this herb circle.
Summer is a real scorcher in Australia, so shade cloth is definitely a must for plants like lettuce, if a shady position is not possible. Some of my plants have already experienced leaf burn, after all my procrastination of putting up shade cloth. I like the way they have positioned their shade cloth.
Make sure you pop by when you’re in the area!
