Harvest of the Suburbs by Andrea Gaynor

Book Description

Who has grown their own food in Australian suburbs? And why have they grown it? How have they gone about keeping animals and growing fruit and vegetables, and with what impacts? What can the history of food-producing spaces tell us about the diverse cultures, and values, of suburban Australia? Drawing on sources ranging from gardening books and magazines, to statistics and oral history, Harvest of the Suburbs challenges some of the widespread myths about food production in Australian cities, and traces the reasons for its enduring popularity.
