Participating Organisations and Gardens
Participants that contributed to this research came from experienced and respected organisations and community gardens. This research should not be considered the opinions of the following organisations. Members of these organisations contributed to the findings of this research, mostly by interview, and some through key speakers at attended forums.
Respondents were contacted due to their involvement in active community organisations connected to sustainable, self-sufficient gardens or garden activities. Many thanks to the many people that helped me in my research endeavours.
