Seeking information – do you grow your own food for ‘survival’?

Posted in Events, Seeking by Ferne Edwards on March 13th, 2009

I realise that ‘survival’ is a fairly strong term, but I’m wondering if there are many people out there – in Melbourne, Australia and elsewhere – who have been or who have recently started to grow their own food in order to supplement their diets? The reasons of course may be varied – is it due to burgeoning tough times in the economic recession, is it because you’d like to become more self-sufficient and self-supporting, is it because you want to act and do something for yourself and for the environment in this era of climate change? Of course, there’s probably many more reasons than that…. And maybe you’re doing other things besides…. I’d be very interested to know.
