In a bid to grow our own, we caught up with Sydney horticulturist Jon Kingston, who runs City Garden Wise, works for The Edible Balcony, and volunteers at the Wayside Chapel rooftop garden, to gather tips on how to propagate this popular botanical.

The Slowpoke: PLENTY MORE More than ever there is a limelight shining on the plants on our plates. There are a host of reasons this can only be a good thing (our health, the less environmental strain, and the lives of animals that are less likely lost in eschew of a plateful of plants). And this vegetable renaissance may partly be thanks to the rise of chefs like Yotam Ottolenghi and their out and proud love for the vegetable.

KIDS IN THE GARDEN

November

The Slowpoke: KIDS IN THE GARDEN Getting children into the garden, teaching them to grow, harvest and cook their own food is one of those activities in life that is highly rewarding.

Following our visit yesterday to The Sage Garden, gardener of all things edible
