The article presents the comments of organic gardener Sarah Davies on the interest of organic gardening in Auckland, New Zealand and how she advises interested people. She works mainly with beginner gardeners who wanted to grow their own vegetables but did not know how to do it and her clients ranged from 22 to 84 years of age. Before coming into gardening she worked in Public Relations in England, Ireland and Auckland and started gardening when she learned about the pesticides used in food.
