We love seeing what kids are growing with their families in their gardens, so snap and email us an image of what you’re harvesting at the moment.

Time spent in the garden can be precious, so make the most of it by always being able to put your hands on the tool you need as and when you need it with this handmade garden-tool caddy.
You don’t need a pattern to make a new top, just a well-loved one you already own so you can replicate the best bits and know it’ll fit. And because the straight seams of this freehand design makes it easy to hand stitch, you don’t even need a sewing machine.
If you love plants, you’ll know there’s always more to them than meets the eye. For Bardi artist Juanita Mulholland, coming to know native plants and their uses through weaving, sculpting and eco-dyeing, has helped her find herself, and reconnect with her heritage.
Our new issue of Pip Magazine features a new cover design and lots of content to help you live a more earth - friendly life. In this issue you will learn how to grow fruit trees in small spaces, harvest wild food from your neighbourhood, implement permaculture design into your home garden, make fermented tempeh from scratch as well as make your own gardening tool caddy. We also feature inspiring stories from across the country including a garden in Ocean Grove helping with teen climate anxiety, a market gardener growing greens for the people of Alice Springs, an Indigenous weaver and dyer who works with native plants and a hempcrete home build in Tasmania. Plus all our regular pieces on foraging, seed saving, beekeeping and reducing your impact on the planet
