    Andrea Gaynor’s interest in suburban food production began when she was eight, with a failed attempt at growing okra in her parents’ backyard in the Perth suburb of Woodlands.

    Her enthusiasm undamped by this inauspicious start, Andrea went on to study permaculture, breed traditional varieties of poultry and occasionally grow a decent tomato.

    Andrea is co-editor of Country: Visions of Land and People in Western Australia and has published articles on topics ranging from food to feral cats.
