Community Gardens

A celebration of the people, recipes and plants

Penny Woodward, Pam VardyISBN: 9781864470963Large-format, full-colour, 176pp, $9.99

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.

Winner, 2007 Horticultural Media Award’s Book Laurel for an outstanding original book by an Australian or New Zealand writer:

The judges wrote of Community Gardens, ‘... possibly the first book on any gardening topic that virtually had the judges in tears! [It is] ... an inspiration to all and takes gardening back to its most important basics.’
