The Khan's urban farm
Despite established fruit trees, some very happy chooks, and a huge space to play, the Khan’s backyard had whole lot of not much going on – except for a couple of giant looming pylons.
Fazeel is passionate about growing fruit for his family, and Amna loves cooking, so we knew some additional fruit trees and a raised vegie patch filled with peas, broccoli, cabbage and lettuce, would go down a treat.
We also set up a compound composter and worm farm which the kids can get involved with, and will help feed the existing trees.
The deck got a scrub up and was fit out with a couple of awesome beanbags, and Dan and Dion built a colourful playground so the kids can make the most of this awesome space.
“I love the space and the colourfulness,” says Amna. “That is so unbelievable – it’s amazing, I am absolutely delighted with what you’ve done,” says Fazeel.
