ON THE VINE

A TINY HOUSE and Nature • Brydie Piaf, writer and photographer extraordinaire, from Newcastle on Awabakal and Worimi Country, visits Tricia at her tiny house in a bush valley.

Road testing bantam chooks • Small chooks for small spaces: Claire Bickle from Turrbal and Jagera Country in Brisbane, EG’s encyclopaedia of poultry wisdom, turns our attention to compact chooks.

Seven years is just the start • Gary Thomas, our wandering garden chef, is from Daylesford on Djadjawarrung Country in Central Victoria. This issue he recounts travelling to Italy to spend invaluable time with a Slow Food master of inspiration and culinary delight.

VINEGAR SWALE PUMPKIN

FROM SHEEP SCRUB to forested habitat • Bruce Hedge, our permaculture expert from Newham, on Wurundjeri Country in Central Victoria, visits a couple who’ve established a forestry farm with wildlife protection.

Litter-ally RENDERED • Locked down in Melbourne’s industrial west (Bunurong Country) our Weekend Hippie tries to maintain her connection with the Earth by (checks notes) buying some in a shop. Returning to Clydesdale in Dja Dja Wurrung Country, Liz Ingham throws some ideas at the wall to see if they stick.

Bonsai for relaxation AND MEDITATION • Tanya Jenykn of Esperance in WA – in Kepa Kurl, Wudjari land in Nyungar Boodjar – continues her ‘indoors’ theme with a fascinating look at the art of bonsai.

GROWING ALL OVER • Rachel Altenbacher is Earth Garden’s permie farmer on Biripi land in the Manning Valley region of NSW. Here we see how Rachel’s extraordinary networking skills expand to the other side of the world to help build resilience.

Obsessed with blooms • Tara Luca from Olive Gap Organic Farm on Bundjalung Country in northern NSW, hands on some tips for keeping life full of flowers.

deep roots mean HARDY PLANTS • Jackie French, one of the nation’s living treasures, lives on Dhurga and Allelluin land of the Yuin nation at Majors Creek in NSW. Here Jackie described how putting down roots can be faster and cheaper than you think.

GROWING SALSIFY • Wendy Bartlett lives at Normanville in South Australia on the traditional land of the Kaurna people. Wendy has been our ‘fundamental foods’ writer for many years, and here she teaches us about the underrated root vegie, salsify.

‘a wild and rusticall Salad’ • Keith and Irene Smith founded Earth Garden back in 1972. For all these years Keith has maintained his written contributions to EG. This issue, from Gamaragal (Eora) Country, in Artarmon NSW, Keith leads us through the history of corn salad.

Tunisian crochet TEAPOT COSY • Beth Wyatt from Gundungurra country in NSW showed us her delightful technique for a Tunisian crocheted head wrap last winter. Here she adapts that method for a pre-winter tea cosy.

TUNISIAN SIMPLE STITCH

Sustainable living at its best • Brynnie and Keith Goodwill, WWOOF Australia hosts on Wonnarua/Darkinjung Land, in the Lower Hunter Valley of NSW, describe their beautiful property and lifestyle.

ARE BACKYARD BEES RIGHT FOR YOU? • Jo Roberts lives in northern Tasmania on Letteremairrener country, of which no known descendants now exist. This issue Jo visits an extraordinary beekeeper, George Darby, who shares his wisdom for any aspiring apiarists.
