As some of you may know, I am enrolled in a postgraduate study at RMIT in environment and planning. Next to scuba diving, I love food. I am passionate about food and for my thesis I have decided to research into urban food production from an urban design/planning perspective.
My study is about household food security in relation to peak oil and climate change, and the role of urban design/planning in addressing the issue. Part of my study is the empirical research of actual household food production in Greater Melbourne.
I am looking for urban food gardeners to participate in the data collection. The study will be for a period of 12 weeks. It does entail measuring the weigh of the produce on a weekly basis. No restriction on size of the plot, it could be a balcony or an allotment. Hydroponic/aquaponic buffs are also welcome to take part – the more diverse the production method, the merrier.
It has to be Melbourne-based and non-commercial in nature. If you are interested, please get in contact with me by leaving a message below.
And if you could kindly spread the word to other urban food gardeners, that would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks! 🙂
