A project to collect yield data from urban food gardens
Food gardens in urban backyards, can be highly productive, they can provide fresh nutritious food at low cost and low energy inputs. Are they am under-recognised food source ?
This project is seeking gardeners willing to measure their harvest for a season, scales can be provided if needed. It doesn’t matter what gardening style is being used - Mediterranean, Asian, biodynamic, traditional English, Permaculture or whatever as long as it produces food. An analysis of the yield data will be published and hopefully assist local councils in their support for food gardens.
As well as harvest measuring the project will interview gardeners and create short case studies on gardening techniques for the local area.
If you are interested to participate or would like to hear more please contact us.
Thanking you, all the best,
