This climate section looks at the impact of climate on the environment and how that directly effects the food that you can grow in your garden.  It views climate from a regional perspective right down to the microclimate of backyards, as well as how the urban environment actively influences climate.

It also looks at the climate of Ballarat.  Even if you don't live in Ballarat it is worth looking at to see how similar Ballarat's climate is to your own climate.  That way you will be able to adjust the information on this site to better fit the climate of your home town.
