We have been a customer of Your Patch for years now, and still enjoying the service. I wanted to be sure my daughter understood where growing things come from, rather than a poly tray in the supermarket. As a full time working single parent, having the team set up and maintain the tanks is excellent, we simply marvel and harvest. As they’re in the front yard, (instead of high maintenance no use grass, and because of a digging dog) they’re a great conversation point in the community. Haven’t had any negative feedback from the neighbors, because the tanks blend with the environment, are always well tended and yield lush colour and fragrance. There’s always more than enough on harvesting, so we either trade with the local shops (who never pass up the opportunity for local fresh produce) or give away to family and friends, which always brings its own reward. Organic was a must for me, but in any event, fresh produce in your daily diet is a whole new world. Tim and his team are very knowledgeable, flexible and reliable, what more could you ask for?

We began our Crunch & Sip Program in 2004 in an effort to overcome the problem in our community of children coming to school without breakfast and/or lunch and also to expose them to healthy eating options. In conjunction with this each year our parent group have been offered workshops in relation to healthy eating and balancing the budget. This was run in conjunction with the Community Nurse.
In 2007 we began our school Canteen as a healthy eating Canteen. This year we initiated the edible garden. Rather than having to purchase extra fruit and vegies each week to ensure that all children have access to Crunch and Sip time each day, we have been able to access the fruit and vegies from the garden. Different groups are involved in harvesting the food and assisting with keeping down the weeds. The area is fertilised with compost from the compost bin and bokashi bins, so links with our sustainable practises and we are connecting the water tanks to the retic to water the garden.
The garden was completely set up for us and maintained by Tim from Your Patch. They have been very reliable, friendly and helpful. It has been a most successful venture for us in a number of ways.

Great garden, great vegies, great people!!! Have been really impressed with the knowledge, enthusiasm and diligence of “Your Patch” on every level. Most of all, we love our home grown vegetables.
Your Patch came highly recommended by a neighbour, we have been very satisfied. Thank you.

I’d like to thank Tim and all the staff at Your patch Organic for setting up and maintaining my beautiful vegie garden. I’ve never had better tasting or fresher vegies and it has cut down my food shopping bill as I never buy vegies anymore. I’ve been able to learn a lot about growing premium quality organic produce from you guys. My neighbours also agree with me as the garden has been so productive, I have been able to share out the extra vegies that are grown.
Thanks for everything and your continual service.

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful service that Your Patch Organics offers.
As you know we are a daycare center, and have had your organic vegetable patches for three years. During this time not only have the children enjoyed delicious vegetables in their meals, but they have also had the opportunity to connect with nature and explore many mathematical and scientific concepts.
The children (and staff) enjoy watching the vegetables grow and harvesting them, often eating the carrots straight out of the ground. Having your company maintain the patches has been invaluable as we are often very busy, and some of us have limited gardening know how. Thanks to your fortnightly service and helpful suggestions we are guaranteed a successful harvest each season.
