How does your garden grow?

THESE heritage-listed market garden farms in Sydney’s Rockdale district date back to 1842 – operated initially by German and Irish settlers and later by the Chinese.

Today they are a living, working remnant of history – peace amid an ever-growing metropolis and mere minutes from the nation’s busiest airport at Mascot.

The farms still supply fresh spinach and bok choy primarily to the Asian restaurant sector. |SMS
