DEFINITIONS OF SELF SUFFICIENCY
An attempt to understand what self sufficiency can mean brought together various adjuncts that could be considered relevant to an ability to grow useful plants- permaculture, horticultural therapy and bushfoods. These subtopics were explored for their connection to self sufficiency gardening, and for a broader definition of ‘self-sufficiency’. This research project found that they do contribute to the story of sustainable, self-sufficiency gardening in Melbourne. This section is expressive rather than thorough.
