    Hi. My husband (Paul) and I live on a less that 800sq metre block in Hervey Bay, and every inch of available land (except for space for a wheelbarrow to travel) has garden beds, raised beds and large pots with fruit, veggies, herbs or (some) plants that are beneficial to predator or pollinating insect (including our native bees)
    I have been following Mark from Self Sufficient Me for , like forever, and am pleased to find this site, and it's culture (and more of Mark's ideas

    Welcome Dorothy. Your garden sounds lovely and using all the space is so clever.

    People say 800m is too small but I'm sure you are well aware, if planted fully, it still takes all your time and effort.
    Also the amount of produce harvested is quite sufficient for a small family.
    And still room for plenty of flowers.
