This is what a paddock of parsley looks like (top) with lines of hydroponic greenhouse mint (bottom left), all grown in suburban Melbourne at Butler Market Gardens. Most of us grow our own herbs (😬) but if we ever (hypothetically) have to buy them from the supermarket most of the time they’ve come from here. Rick Butler took my William Angliss class around the Heatherton farm and packing facilities today and had a clear message that increased demand for herbs has made their sixth generation operation viable once again. He also made the students wear hair nets #urbanagriculture #marketgarden #fieldgrown #hydroponics #protectedcropping #sandyloam #parsley #mint #virtuesignalling #hairnets #excellentguide
