New edible gardens have sprouted all over the world in a way not seen since the victory gardens of the First and Second Worlds Wars, and this new report on a survey of Australian edible gardeners explores the reasons why.
We’re taking a well earned break from Wednesday 23rd December, reopening on Monday 11th January. Orders placed during this time will ship (or be ready to pick up) after 11th January.
Thank you for your incredible support over the last year! We’ve loved being part of your edible gardening adventures this year and look forward to many more in the year to come. From the VEG team. 🍅 ... See MoreSee Less
It’s official – 2020 is the year of edible gardening! New edible gardens have sprouted all over the world in a way not seen since the victory gardens of the First and Second Worlds Wars, and this new report on a survey of Australian edible gardeners by Sustain: The Australian Food Network explores the reasons why. Spoiler: if you’ve got a garden it’s everything you’ve already known in your heart all along. 💚

"waiting for lunch" When looking for plant inspiration to fill particular niechs in our edible forest gardens I will often spend time observing and noting those plants and flowers that host and attract the largest diversity of insect life. Beneficial, sacrificial, good, bad, big, small, pollinators and the "what the feijoa is that thing!" This one is Dyers Chamomile which was found in a front yard and hosting so many critters (only 2 made it here) that it is now on my worthy contedors list with a couple of bonus points.
"Modern" gardening has tended to demonise a lot of our insect friends just because they happen to enjoy eating those lush green leaves we like to flaunt at them. Step back, take a deep breath, relax, observe, learn, interact. Everything has a place.
Last week the VEG team got together on the incredibly lush roof tops and podium spaces at the East Brunswick Village development on Nicholson Street. Designed by Dan and others at VEG we were all super chuffed to see how well all of the carefully selected species were doing across the multiple areas. And now lockdown is over we can't wait to see the community garden spring to life!
Very Edible Gardens would love if you can share more info on how the public can get involved with this garden. I failed to find info on the Moreland Council website.
So envious. We have been trying to establish a community garden but without a local council accessing grants and the like is extremely difficult. Fortunately our local landcare group is highly supportive .
