Welcome to Home Grow'n a Permaculture Retrofit Series.

This series follows Perth couple, Craig and Regina's journey as they turn their 1970's suburban property into a self-sufficient forever-home using Permaculture Design with the ambitious challenge to grow their own food, capture their own water and produce their own energy in the middle of suburbia. With the ultimate goal to work with nature and live as sustainably as possible in suburbia.


Regina & Craig,
Jet and Matchstick.






What we aim to achieve

We plan to transform our 900sqm weed-ridden block into a food-forest, Permaculture oasis that will grow its own fresh food, generate it's energy and capture its own water.

We hope by documenting our journey from scratch, will inspire people to live sustainably by showing what is possible in our own backyards.​

EP #4: Making Simple No Dig Veggie Beds | Home Grow'n

EP #4: Making Simple No Dig Veggie Beds | Home Grow'n

Our Sustainable Journey |. A Permaculture Retrofit Series In episode 4 of Home Grow'n, we create No Dig Veggie beds to prepare for planting our vegetable gardens. We also get solar installed on the roof which will power the house from the sun and it's Kambarang season in the Noongar calendar, which means the hot dry days are coming. So, Craig gets to work carving out the veggie beds to prepare for planting. No Dig is a method of gardening which involves not turning of the soil when planting vegetables. By not breaking the soil, we preserve the microbiology in the soil which in turn makes the soil more healthy and rich with life which feeds the plants that we grow. No dig gardening can be done in numerous ways, but we create beds using the sheet mulching method which consists of manure, cardboard and hay or wood chips.
