Inspired by his mum with her love of growing her own and living as self sufficient as possible, something Rohan now try’s to instil into his kids. Converting an old school house in country Victoria, Rohan’s garden is a useful one, and is stuffed full of produce, some fruit tree’s, plemty of seasonal vegetables and mixed herbs.
