Quarter Acre Roots is about our experiences growing our own food on a quarter acre block of land in Carterton, New Zealand. We’ve been doing this for a few years, but this year, 2008, we have decided to turn things up a notch and grow as much of our own food as we can. We also made a decision to buy organic food to fill the gaps, after doing a lot of reading it has become clear that the food supply chain has become unworkable for us in terms of health, ethics and the environment.
