It's all about the base, 'bout the base, 'bout the base...the garden bed base that is. If you want to grow luscious healthy, strong and abundant vegetables, herbs and flowers, you are going to need good quality soil.

The dream job being a gallery manager for one of the eastern suburbs most 'social' art galleries. Up until then, I had navigated the treacherous path of being a full-time waiter, I felt that...

When 10-year-old Noa Jessop was hit by a car and died at the gate to his families farm, a heavy sadness fell across the Bega Valley community.

Some call it the quickening, some call it sprinter but I call it a bit bloody weird this weather hey! It’s getting warmer and wetter, which has the feel of the sub-tropics along many parts of the far south coast of NSW, so have you thought about growing food that may not traditionally belong in your climate zone?

Wearing a t-shirt that said "Ask your teacher to take you outside" and accompanied by the sound of frogs enjoying recent rain,  the host of ABC TV's Gardening Australia has given some radical advice to the voters of Eden-Monaro.

The sea-foam that has enveloped the New South Wales coastline these past few days can seem irresistible. Running through it you wish for some sort of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" moment, hoping to discover that the ocean has churned itself into marshmallow.
