EDITOR

EARTH MAIL

ON THE VINE

GARDENING with friends • Brydie Piaf from Newcastle gets a big dose of infectious inspiration from a wonderful community garden kickstarted again by some energetic locals.

How do you build a TERRARIUM? • Tanya Jenkyn from Esperance in WA is not only an expert herbalist, and indoor plant maestro. She’s even proficient in the dark art of thriving terrariums. Read on for enlightenment.

WOMEN WHO FARM part two • Tara Luca from Olive Gap Organic Farm* in northern NSW continues her fascinating series of interviews with women who farm. Here she talks to Sara Tindley and Samantha & Carol Boomsma.

Resilience triumphs • Permie farmer, Rachel Altenbacher, from mid-north coast NSW, has written for Earth Garden for years now. She is much loved by readers for her energy, warmth, and community spirit. But the tables have turned: Rachel is now the one who deserves support after a recent storm destroyed her garden, most of her fencing, and much of her tree cover.

Tunisian crochet FOR WINTER STYLE • Beth Horn leads us step-by-step along a delightful Tunisian crochet pathway we might never otherwise visit.

online study and travel with WWOOFing • Reilly Grace is a wwoofer on a journey.

FROM FIRE FIGHTERS TO NUTRIENT CYCLERS – trees do it all • Jill Redwood from Goongerah in Victoria’s East Gippsland presents the benefits of tree planting before Spring.

Lulu's calf • Steven French continues his delightful series of snapshots from his family farm in northern Tasmania.

INVASION OF THE Lizard people • Liz Ingham, our quirky weekend hippie, from Yarraville and Clydesdale in Victoria, gets positively reptilian and lets us slither along for the ride.

Moora Moora in 2021 • Bob Rich gives us a peek at the wonderful Moora Moora Community near Melbourne.

Clucky hens, worms, DOUBLE YOLKERS... • Claire Bickle, our certified chook guru of Brisbane, breaks down the mysteries with her voluminous knowledge about all things chook.

Couldn’t drag me away... • What goes around comes around. Our garden chef, Gary Thomas from Daylesford in Victoria, circles back to wild mushroom foraging after a 27 year home detour.

SALT AND PEPPER MUSHROOMS

FUNGI, FRUIT & SOIL • EG’s respected elder of permaculture, Bruce Hedge of Newham in Victoria, is always trying out variations and improvements of old gardening methods. Here Bruce gets to grips with apple guilds and fungi.

Growing swede • Wendy Bartlett from Normanville in SA, has picked the perfect time of year to give us the dirt on swede growing. Swedes are easy to grow — at the right time of year — and they’ll enhance any winter soup or stew.

the virtues of MAXIMALISM • EG Living Legend, Jackie French of Majors Creek in NSW, contrasts two ways of living and giving. Jackie likes Maximum Generosity.

GREVILLEA nectar in the bush • EG’s co-founder, Keith Smith from Artarmon in NSW, focusses on an often-overlooked, but seriously delightful native plant. Here are some of Keith’s favourite varieties of grevillea.

What’s wrong with my chook? • Claire Bickle of Brisbane tackles the most commonly-asked question by any chook keeper. No other chook question has been as frequent, and no other chook expert seems to offer so many answers as Claire.

WINTER IN THE COOP – TOP TIPS

WINTER WARM tummy fillers • Nutritionist and uber-mum of four little ones with big appetites, Jessie Kapitola of Perth present some...
