The Sederof Family

Gardens

Judy and Andreas Sederof love to garden. The couple owns , a sustainable home building company, and their passion for sustainable design principles extends to their garden. While their sixty-square-metre garden is relatively small, it grows big things. For instance, 150 eggplants in one season!

Our gardens columnist  recently caught up with the couple to chat about their bountiful garden in East Brunswick.
