Heide Garden Vegie Patch
Title: Heide Garden Vegie Patch
Broadcast: 10th October
Presenter: Melissa King
Melissa explores the story behind the Heide Garden.
- Founded in 1934 by John and Sunday Reed, they would open their home to like-minded individuals such as artist Sidney Nolan.
- They nurtured a circle of artists, writers and intellectuals who contributed to Heide becoming a place for discussion, creation and promotion of modern art & literature.
- Visitors can discover Sunday Reed’s walled garden, vegetable garden and the Neil Douglas wild garden near Heide I, the original farmhouse, and the famous Heide II kitchen garden.
- Today the kitchen garden is nurtured and maintained by a dedicated
team of gardeners, following the original ideal of a sustainable garden that also provides produce for the Café Vue at Heide.
