Growing More Food Ebook

The dream of growing more food is a common one for many of us! The thrill of bringing in a basket filled to the brim with homegrown garden produce is one many of us are familiar with during the summer glut - but what if you could have this all year round?

We all want to be growing more food but how do we do that, so that we get a consistent harvest all year round. The answer lies in the planning. Our Growing More Food ebook  is designed to take you through the steps to plan your plantings so that you are eating from your garden throughout the year.

Whether you live on a suburban block, a small acreage or even if you’re part of a community garden, this guide will show you the simple, but often overlooked tricks behind growing all your own veg, year round.

Pip’s Issue 30 is packed full of inspiration and information to bring in the productive food-growing season. We share our in-depth guide to growing your pumpkins, squash, melons and zucchinis, we explain the hows and whys of keeping a highly productive worm farm, guide you on how you can be best prepared for this year’s fire season and take you on a tour of a stunning and sustainable off-grid family home.

We take a deep dive into the current state of electric vehicle ownership, inspire you to grow ingredients for refreshing summer drinks and even show you how to harvest and prepare sea urchins, which can help restore ocean ecosystems.

As well as all of our informative regulars, you’ll learn natural ways to keep pests out of your vegie patch, how to save your homegrown garlic for seed, and meet a woman who has finally found the time and space to live the life she’s always dreamt of.
