“Building the garden you want with whatever you’ve got”
Australia is a massive pharmacy store, where some very useful plants grow in our streets, reserves and gardens.
If you put raw silverbeet in your salad, or casually add nitrogen to your vegetables, this book is a must read. If it doesn’t save your life, it will certainly improve it.
“If they (children) grow it, they will eat it”.
Schools are where Australia’s gardening culture is most rapidly developing, and this is thanks to children. Why? They are generally more keenly aware of 21st century global environmental issues than many adults realise and they want a better future.
If you’re a beginner gardener or a parent and you and your child would like to learn about gardening, ‘Eat your garden’ is for you.
