Monica Moriyasu and her partner Warren Brown, both fine art photographers, live in Red Beach, Auckland, in New Zealand and have created their garden on a 550 square meter lot (1/10 of an acre).
With a garden focusing predominantly on vegetables, Moriyasu and Brown are currently still harvesting their vegetables in winter—since New Zealand's summer months start in December—and are planning for even more bounty over the coming months!
"Like many in these times, we have many former lives and occupations," says Moriyasu. "Warren is a former industrial chemist specializing in fertilizer, and a computer guru. I started my career as a chef, and have followed many creative occupations since, including house and garden design."
But the pair have always loved gardening and their garden reflects their sustainable and practical approach to life.
