Cat, Adrian and Dan faced eviction from their rental house for growing their own food, but turned it into a chance to celebrate their efforts. This story is also about psychological and practical responses to preparing for peak oil and food security.
Adam Fenderson for Food Fight, 3CR
There is hope for suburbia in a post oil peak world, as these renters proved, creating an extremely productive intensive permaculture garden in their backyard. They also organise permaculture 'backyard blitzes' or permablitzes to help people with few gardening skills to rapidly prepare for backyard food production and share skills.

Update: The Thomas street share house is no longer, but the permablitz concept lives on!
