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.
GIVEAWAY! We're holding this Saturday's Edible Weeds Walk online at 10:30am Melbourne time and we're giving away two tickets for you and a friend to come along. All you have to do to enter is:
1. Comment below letting us know what your favourite edible or medicinal weed is, 2. Tag a friend that you'd love to join you at this online event, and 3. Make sure you're both following us here.
You can tag as many fellow foragers as you like for more entries (one friend per comment). Entries close at 5pm this Friday 4th June. We'll randomly draw the winners and message you both on Friday evening with details on how to get your free tickets. Good luck!
