Population growth has profound impacts on Australian life, and sorting myths from facts can be difficult. This article is part of our series, Is Australia Full?, which aims to help inform a wide-ranging and often emotive debate. 

Researchers at WESTIR and Macquarie University Department of Sociology are working on a collaborative research project, ‘Culture, Community and Sustainable Food Practices: A Study of Community Gardens in Blacktown, Western Sydney’. The project aims to explore how the practice of community gardening among Blacktown residents facilitates intercultural sociality, builds ‘community’ and develops knowledge and skills in sustainable food practices.
