John will give us practical hints on growing these four key vegetables in Ballarat’s springtime including information on air and soil temperature dynamics and how they influence when and how to plant in spring.

John brings with him a lifetime of experience in growing fruit and vegetables and being involved in the food gardening community. He first began to grow vegetables at the age of sixteen. Since then, apart from a year spent travelling, he has always grown vegetables in one form or another. As well as running the Urban Food Garden, he has been involved in numerous gardening activities in Melbourne and Ballarat.

John also works as a freelance cartoonist; you can check out his work here.
