Waikato Times Article on the Sustainable Backyard

The Waikato Times article, “Backyard project wows researcher” by Jeff Neems, describes some aspects of what I’m focusing on in my research, while highlighting the Sustainable Backyard garden at Hamilton Gardens (Hamilton, New Zealand).

As a main thrust of my internship, The Hamilton Permaculture Trust was interested in elevating public awareness about the Sustainable Backyard.  With two newspaper articles, a community radio segment entitled Environment Matters (which will air on 19 Jan) and a talk to friends, volunteers and staff at Hamilton Gardens, communicating to the public about permaculture in public gardens was, and continues to be, an important part of my work.
