                                      This data was collected by citizen scientists involved in the Edible Gardens project. The Edible Gardens project was a practical investigation into the productivity, resource efficiency and social value of urban agriculture in South Australia. Participating gardeners grew all kinds of herbs, vegetables and fruits. They also kept urban livestock such as chickens, other poultry, fish and bees. This dataset contains information related to each of the 34 registered home food gardens: spatial (suburb location, area under production, no. of garden areas, garden area location, type of production method); garden inputs (labour, costs, water [applied irrigation {mains water, collected rainwater or bore/grey water} and natural rainfall]); outputs (crop yields, calculated average retail price, calculated average nutritional content, sharing of produce with others (family, friends, community, food swap, other) and timing, length and season of all garden related activities (watering, planting, harvesting, livestock care, weeding, pest control, purchasing, sharing produce, fertilising, building, other).

                                      Start date: 11 Oct 2015

                                      Comments: Data were collected across South Australia on 34 home food gardens, containing 93 individual garden areas. Participants were permitted to continue collecting data for as long as they wished (minimum period of one month), although longer participation was encouraged. Data collection occurred across all four seasons, although not all gardens collected data for the entire period. Across all 34 participating gardens, the median duration of data collection was 176 days (just under 6 months), while the total data collection period amounted to 7,565 individual “garden-days” or 252 “garden-months”.
