All of these creatures live within the confines of the gardens and are quite harmless. At Oaklands Street, we use simple organic methods in shared beds tended by our volunteers.

  • Fresh Paper
    • About – A simple way to help food stay fresh for longer. Just put one of the 11cm by 14cm sheets into the fridge crisper, salad bag, berry carton or fruit bowl. The sheet is infused with organic spices that inhibit bacterial and fungal growth as well as enzymes that cause over-ripening. Each sheet works for about a month. Over 5 million tonnes of food goes to landfill every year in Australia, according to OzHarvest. This invention is good for your conscience and your hip pocket too.
