Penge Edible Garden
Tanja Raaste started her gardening journey with a potted basil plant, after which things got out of hand. She now grows over 70 varieties of edible plant in her small urban garden, using organic, permaculture, no-dig and forest gardening methods – all designed to make the garden as productive, beautiful and low-maintenance as possible.
Decisions on what to grow are made on the basis of tastiness – a true stomach-led garden! When not experimenting in the garden, she runs the Edible Garden blog and offers a design and planning service for others wishing to grow edibles. Through the summer, there are also a couple of garden tours/workshops, where we look at what to grow, where to grow it, how to deal with pests, and a Q&A over some home-grown herbal teas.
