About this book

This book explores the ideas and practices that have shaped organic farming and gardening in Australia from the interwar years to the present day. It traces four themes of Australian organic farming and gardening - soil, chemical free, ecological well-being and back to the land - each illustrated with a case study profiling an Australian organic farmer or gardener.

The text also features extracts from early organic magazines and interviews with current organic growers, managers of outback sheep stations, dairy farmers and self-sufficiency gardeners.
