Polly’s Blog – a pig’s eye view…

Hello and welcome to my blog.

My name’s Miss Polly Kultcha, a very loveable and sociable pig (well, everyone says I’m adorable…) living at Djanbung Gardens since I was a young piglet.  Hope you enjoy my pig’s eye view of the world and life in a permaculture garden. I love food and meeting people and having interesting conversations.
