Kate Clifford is a writer, gardener, organiser, arty type, and food enthusiast.

After a lifetime in inner city Melbourne I headed for the hills. We got a big garden and then an even bigger one. We grew some food and some other stuff. We were still only a block from the supermarket and the cafes, so in some ways nothing changed. Then we moved back to the red pages of the Melway. It was time. Now we have a balcony, and some parsley on the kitchen window sill.
