Home Living : November 18th 2008
8 HLF - Publication, Tuesday, November 18, 2008 .................................................. HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE Brick benefits When Yasir and Esta Georgees were building their Sydney home they knew it had to be full brick. Having lived in a full-brick home before, they were well aware of the advantages a solid-brick home offers. ''It's cool in summer and even though the house has airconditioning it is very rarely used. ''In winter the home also needs very little heating when it is cold outside,'' Mr Georgees says. ''The house is strong and solid which gives a good feeling of security. In my opinion, it is also a good investment.'' The Georgees' home is full brick on all three floors including the basement level. Details: Visit www.fullbrick.com.au or call 1800 670 235. Joys of your own patch A produce patch is a great way to educate children about food » ADVERTISING FEATURE When looking for ways to cut costs, grow your own produce with mygreenpatch. The recently-launched DIY produce patch business shows how easy it is to reap the benefits from eating untreated and ripe produce; and save money in the process. Harvey Baker-Dowdell started mygreenpatch after years of disappointment about produce options. ''I was sick of buying tasteless tomatoes and I couldn't believe it when broccoli hit $8 a kilo,'' he says. ''I knew I could do better and started a small vegetable patch in my back yard.'' Mr Baker-Dowdell grows everything from tomatoes to passionfruit. ''When I talked to friends about what I was doing, they wanted to grow their own fruit and vegetables too, but didn't have space or time,'' he says. ''That got me thinking and I started working on plans for three different produce patches for large open spaces and for apartments.'' A produce patch is also a great way to educate children about food -- where it comes from and what it should taste like. The three patch sizes are: myproducepatch (2400x1200mm), mystarterpatch (1200x600mm) and myherbpatch/ mykidspatch (600x600mm). Each kit comes with timber, soil, tools, instructions and seedlings. Prices start from $250, including delivery. Details: www.mygreenpatch.com.au or call Harvey Baker-Dowdell on 0438 267 777.
