What exciting crops can we grow in the backyard that you can't readily get in the supermarket, and what crops are adapted to a warming climate?
We're joined by Dr Chris Williams who researches and teaches about the social, cultural and technical aspects of urban agriculture at the Burnley Campus of Melbourne University. Amongst his many interests he runs the Novel Crops Project which identifies less widely grown food plants for cultivation in Melbourne gardens, for example, sweet potato and taro. The Project is trying to keep people excited about the idea of ‘edible landscapes’, gardens that look great and inviting but also provide food. Check out Chris's blog: People, Plants, Landscape.
