As the coronavirus lockdown laws keep us inside the boundaries of our home, there has been an explosion of interest in producing our own food.
Vegetable seeds and fruit plants have been recent big sellers through outdooring outlets like Bunnings.
“The fact that nurseries have sold out of seedlings, and seed manufacturers have got empty shelves, it shows that people are going back to our roots,” Laurie Green of the Sydney Edible Garden Trail told 9News.
Trail co-founder Bridget Kennedy has spent 20 years cultivating her domestic cornucopia, including banana trees and even a fish pond with silver perch and trout.
But she says anybody can make their backyard just as fertile.
“You could just start small, with herbs and some citrus trees, some radishes, things like that,” she told 9News.
Some of Sydney’s best homegrown produce, along with tips on how to start urban farming, can now be found online.
