A Sharehouse Garden
Tino visits a garden in inner city Hobart to help a houseful of enthusiastic and ambitious young people get the best out of their patch. Tino heads to a much-loved two-storey sharehouse in the heart of Hobart, to give the residents Renae, Derry, Thomas and Cee and hand in their productive patch.
Josh meets a 16-year-old bee keeper who is so passionate about keeping honey bees, he’s teaching other young people. We’re in a suburban backyard in Bicton, near Fremantle. More and more people are becoming curious about keeping European honeybees, both for the delicious honey they produce and the pollination services they bring to the garden. This garden has two hives, and the person looking after them is Luke de Laeter, a 16-year-old apiarist!
