A friend of mine is writing a gardening book for publication early next year. She has written to me to ask if I know of anyone who might make an interesting profile. She wants to “show youngish people doing their own thing with limited resources. I’m looking for people who are doing interesting, creative and/or d.i.y things… so working with junk, making their own stuff, finding ways to cut costs and being creative. They should also be working with small spaces, difficult spaces, urban environments etc.”. Specifically she wants to be able to include:
1. An unusual or creative garden (as described above. Fairly open-ended)
2. A container garden
3. Food grown in a limited or difficult space (rooftops etc)
4. A southern climate garden
5. An unusual design concept
If you fit any of these ideas and especially if you are from Australia or New Zealand, send me an email so I can send on your details.
Also — for me — A call to any mums or dads of young kids in the Blackburn / Box Hill / Forest Hill area… I need to get some inside stories on what the kindergartens and schools are like in the area… if you are out there can you please email me and say hello?
