Inspirational gardens - Tassie tales

LINDA COCKBURN looks back on her family’s adventures when they moved to Tasmania six years ago, to build a home and grow their own food. We collected together a few additional pictures of her garden and home, to illustrate her success.

We made a pact with ourselves to go six months without spending a dollar on food, power, water or transport—and to create as little waste as possible

In the ABC Organic Gardener Essential Guide: Inspirational Gardens, Linda Cockburn tells the story of her journey towards living as sustainably as possible.

Here are a few additional inspiring photos of her home and family.
