“They say a man’s home is his castle, but in this case the garden is John Kaplin’s crowning glory.
Mr. Kaplin’s two-bedroom home at 23 Marville Ave, Kingsford, sits on only a fraction of the 950 sqm of grounds, with a giant fruit orchard occupying most of the space. ‘I’m only one man, I don’t need much space,’ Mr Kaplin said.
The garden is not just a sight to behold. It is also practical, with everything able to be eaten.
With everything from fruit to spice trees, the garden has been a labour of love for Mr Kaplin, who moved into the home in 1997.
He is now a popular neighbour and friend, handing out the goods from about 150 trees.…”
