Inside the current issue

July/August 2017

This issue, ABC Organic Gardener focuses on self-reliance, from growing your own hops and brewing beer to rediscovering the time-honoured arts of hedging and dry stone walling.

Plus, there’s practical advice on growing peaches, broad beans and other pulses, making biochar, preserving your winter harvest for year-round enjoyment, creating a system that turns chook manure into vegies, and planting natives that attract birds to your garden.

All this and much, much more!
