The Garden gift pack Ho Mi & Urban Farmer
The Urban Farmer by Justin Calverley
Producing our own fruit, vegetables, herbs, eggs and honey is perfectly possible in a suburban space
The Urban Farmer is a guide for anyone who dreams of living the country life in the city by growing their own healthy, sustainable fruit and veg – and more!
Justin advocates observing and following nature’s cycles and patterns as the best way to a sustainable and productive garden. As well as growing fruit and veg, The Urban Farmer explains how to take up bee-keeping, chook care, propagation, maintaining your plot and preserving your patch’s bounty. So be inspired and get cracking with your own personal garden of Eden!
The Australian made Aussie Ho Mi, Asian hand held hoe
Unlike western gardening tools, the Aussie Ho Mi is an ergonomic hand-held hoe which uses a more comfortable and natural action and is based on a traditional Korean design.
This tool s lightweight and perfectly balanced. Rotates easily in the hand from the sharp pointed working edge, to the equally sharp wide edge. Dig, weed, cultivate, ridge, plant, scalp this tool will do everything. Once you start to use it, you will find yourself hooked!
Handcrafted in Australia by artisan tool makers F.D Ryan, the Aussie Ho Mi is made from high carbon steel, heat-treated for maximum strength and sharpened to a knife edge. Check out the other beautiful F.D Ryan tools in the Pip range.
With care, your Ho Mi will last a lifetime.
