Here’s a snapshot of what you will find in Issue 27…
A productive winter garden is created in autumn. We reveal what jobs you need to do to keep your vegie patch productive through the colder months.
There are many different ways to create compost at home; which is best depends on your situation and what fits into your space and lifestyle. We bring you a composting 101 guide.
‘Tomato day’, ‘sauce day’ or ‘passata day’ – a long-held custom for Italian families in Australia – is a day for reconnecting with all generations for the annual passata-making tradition. We show you how to take part!
There are so many benefits to making bone broth, and they extend further than the many health benefits. We bring you a delicious basic bone broth recipe.
As overconsumption continues to drive the climate crisis, we meet with Tasmanian building designer Jane Hilliard, who is quietly trumpeting the idea that less is actually more.
We bring you a feature on how rising living costs and broken supply chains have seen a resurgence in backyard food growing and with it, a return to local food swapping and increased community resilience.
We visit a once vacant and decrepit vicarage in Melbourne’s inner-north suburb of Preston that is now home to Oakhill Food Justice Farm, a community space and urban farm empowering members with knowledge, skills and stronger social connections.
We show you how to build a self-watering raised garden bed – aka a wicking bed – perfect for growing vegies.
