During her 25-year journalistic career, Indira Naidoo became one of Australia’s most popular broadcasters, winning many awards. She hosted and reported for some of the country’s most distinguished news and current affairs programs including ABC’s nightly Late Edition news and SBS TV’s World News Tonight.
Since leaving full-time news broadcasting in 2000, Indira’s journalistic interest has not only shifted to the role global environmental issues play in conflict, poverty and food security, but she has also developed a food-gardening obsession. This obsession has led to Indira winning more awards - as a food garden designer - as well as accolades as a best-selling author.
Her first book The Edible Balcony is about growing food in small spaces. Her follow-up book The Edible City, about community gardening, was published in 2015.
