If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold , it would be a merrier world. (JRR Tolkien)

Diggers Club We have Australia's largest range of heirloom vegetables, cottage flowers and fruit plants that can be delivered direct to your door.
Eden Seeds OUR AIM is to distribute old traditional open pollinated varieties of vegetable seed, preferably old Australian varieties and organically or bio-dynamically grown where possible.
The Pea Straw Man Our straw comes from a farm near Kukerin (about 300kms south east of Perth). Pea straw is the product left over when the pea crop has been harvested; after harvest the straw is raked and baled and stored ready for market. Many farmers grow peas as a rotational crop as peas are a nitrogen fixing plant and are useful for soil improvement - which is very important in our fragile environment!
