ON THE VINE

TINY HOUSE TOURING ON VEGIE OIL: Harry Jakamarra • Imagine touring the continent in your own tiny house on wheels and paying nothing for diesel because you’ve converted your tiny house to run on waste vegie oil. Musician, Harry Jakamarra, plays gigs and festivals from Central Queensland to Broome, and here in the first of a two part story, he describes his fascinating, low-impact lifestyle.

turmeric the easy way • Turmeric is a perfect match for any organic gardener who cooks. Here, Andrew Meyles from Hunter Backyard Vegie Growers in Newcastle, NSW, describes how he gets great results growing turmeric. Next issue he’ll explain how to dry and powder the turmeric for storage.

IT’S Turkey TIME • Claire Bickle of Brisbane is EG’s highly-esteemed expert on feathered friends. Here she tackles turkeys head on.

helping the humans • Steven French is an editor and photojournalist from northern Tasmania.

PRIORITISE, COMPROMISE, IMPROVISE • Rachel Altenbacher continues her series on farm life from her eco-property near the mid-north coast of NSW. Here she meanders through the challenges of solving farm problems in drought time when there aren’t enough extra hands about.

HELMS ARBORETUM another botanical experiment • EG’s resident herbalist, Tanya Jenkyn, of Esperance in WA, continues the detours from herbs with the Big Move to her family’s new rural block — another delightful meandering into the exquisite world of WA wildflowers.

BULLY the woolly • EG’s national treasure Jill Redwood lives on her self-sufficient farm in Goongerah, East Gippsland. Jill is one of Australia’s leading environmentalists, and here she gives us the lowdown on chemical-free fight against woolly aphid on apple trees.

FIRST, KATCHAPOURI • Not so easily done - this fine Georgian treat gets hunted to its source by our fearless, globe-trotting garden chef, Gary Thomas of Daylesford in Victoria.

KATCHAPOURI with TWO FILLINGS

START A VEGIE PATCH in summer • There’s no time like the present. Long-time EG writer and photographer, Sarah Price from near Bellingen on the north coast of NSW, can help you kick start that fresh food desire.

SIMPLIFY the summer kitchen • Brydie Piaf of Newcastle in NSW solves the challenge of feeding the hungry masses over summer without using the oven to roast the family.

OLIVE OIL CRACKERS

HUMMUS

SURVIVING the wide brown land • Jackie French of Majors Creek in New South Wales brings her experience and wisdom to the challenge of how to survive this drought.

Diggers • 40 Years of the best garden ideas

Sauerkraut FOR SWEET SUMMER BELLIES • Jo Roberts from northern Tasmania explains just how ridiculously easy it is to make your own sauerkraut. Get that terrarium in your tummy just humming along with feel-good bugs this summer.

SAUERKRAUT

the DIY COTTON GIN • Nev Sweeney of St Clair in NSW wrote last issue about how to grow your own cotton. Here he describes how he squeezed the last bits of homegrown cotton from his four plants with a novel homemade gin.

succulent & salty • EG’s esteemed co-founder, Keith Smith of Artarmon in NSW, delves into the mysterious life of the coastal pigface plant.

WHEELS IN MOTION • EG’s permaculture grand wizard, Bruce Hedge of Newham in Victoria, profiles an ingenious new eco-solution.
