Anita Fabos has worked with Diggers for fifteen years and has grown up growing her own food, as part of her family culture, for quality, health and happiness.
She grows vegetables, fruit, herbs and meat as organically as possible and processes all where there is a glut. She practices companion planting and balancing nature to help itself. The flavour and quality of what she grow's is second to none.
Featuring over 4 acres of food, cottage and bush gardens each season provides different delights and inspiration to both experienced and aspiring gardeners. The gardens are filled with plants which thrive in central Victoria’s cold winters and hot dry summers. A huge range of daffodils, hellebores and other flowering bulbs bring the garden to life in spring.
Visitors can admire the colour and beauty of our perennial flower borders throughout summer and autumn with hardy, long flowering perennials creating an amazing cottage garden display amongst our Australian bush setting.
The Garden has been certified organic since 2008 and Digger’s range of perennials, bulbs and heirloom vegetables are grown at St Erth using the best organic methods. Seasonal produce from our kitchen gardens is served at St Erth café throughout the year.
