Indian Creek Orchard Gardens

Indian Creek Orchard Gardens

Marisa Buccione & Scott Sigurdson

Indian Creek Orchard Gardens is an organically managed micro farm, intimate in scale. We are nestled on five acres along the shores of Indian Creek, just outside Pakenham. At Indian Creek Orchard Gardens we are experimenting with a hybrid of permaculture, agroforestry and organic farming principles. Our vegetables are alley cropped between rows of fruit trees, bush fruits and aisles of grape vines. We have purposefully left tracts of our farm wild, especially on the creekside.

We value what nature brings to the table and attempt to work with it, bringing our intervention to a minimum. We favour low tech, 100% natural, cultural and biological practices over chemical and heavily mechanized ones. Some of what we are attempting to do is tried and true and a lot of it not so much. Every day in the garden is a lesson.

Our goal is to provide a satisfying stream of safe, organic, wholesome fruit and vegetables for our community the whole growing season long.
