This is the second episode in our growing food in small spaces series and it shows two examples of animals that can be kept in small spaces that are beneficial to your food garden.
We chat about keeping chickens and guinea pigs focusing on how useful their manure and bedding can be in the garden as a homemade fertiliser.
I also demonstrate how to make a liquid fertiliser out of guinea pig manure that I use in the garden instead of buying commercial stuff.
This episode and video series were created with the help of Creator Queensland (a QLD Govt and YouTube initiative) and Griffith University.
The following student crew from LiveLabs helped create the “Growing Food in Small Spaces” series as part of their film course final assessment:
Scott Nolan – Director
Emma Adin – Unit Manager/2nd AD
Karlee Catalano – 1st AD
Sophie Cross – Camera
Phoebe Ireland – Data Wrangler
Tom Davison – Camera
Kenny Waterson – Sound Recordist
Hugo Hood – Production Assist
Patrick Mahon – Continuity
This series was certainly a great learning experience for me as well as being a fun project to help create – thanks to all who made this possible.

Self Sufficient Me is based on our small 3-acre property/homestead in SE Queensland Australia about 45kms north of Brisbane – the climate is subtropical (similar to Florida). I started Self Sufficient Me in 2011 as a blog website project where I document and write about backyard food growing, self-sufficiency, and urban farming in general. I love sharing my foodie and DIY adventures online so come along with me and let’s get into it! Cheers, Mark 🙂
