Revel in the richness and diversity of these inner-city community gardens, and let the people who use them be your guides to:

  • the many fascinating and unusual edible plants they grow and use
  • their stories, touching on the events that brought these extraordinary people from more than 20 different countries to Australia
  • what their gardens mean to them, what they grew in their homelands and what they grow in Australia
  • their simple, home-style recipes using the vegetables and herbs gathered from these gardens
  • tips for successful gardening, like pine needles for strawberries and chicken manure to warm the soil in winter.
(n.b. the recipes include some using meat)
