Have you wandered around the Federation Square car park recently? It seems an odd question to ask. But if you have you will have noticed the thriving veggie gardens. If you haven’t go and have a look. The gardens are inspiring.
I like the idea of working in the CBD, tending a garden during a lunch [...]
