Just a thought which may be way off but... If the garden is for hobbyists in
higher income areas, food may not be the ideal focus, maybe something like
rare indigenous plant cultivation or rare/heirloom vegetables, where the
focus is on continuing seed stock, making plants available to other gardens
and linking with a local botanic garden. A butterfly or bird area could be
added for species under threat which could be maintained by food sources in
the garden. Just a thought,
