On Tuesday I was chatting about creating our own edible gardens in the suburbs. But in the city they’ve gone one step further and created public edible gardens — on the roof of a car park!
Urban Orchard is a fantastic idea that, thanks to lots of hard work, has turned a rather drab area into a tranquil, life-affirming oasis. If you know Perth at all, the directions to the Urban Orchard are simple. It’s just outside the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
