Grow your own food

Making sustainable food choices is an important way to reduce our impact on the environment.

Choosing local seasonal produce, buying organic, wasting less food and composting are all easy ways to make a difference in your home. Growing your own food is fun and healthy, and the results are fresh and delicious. Getting your hands in the dirt is rewarding and relaxing, and a great way for kids to learn more about food production.

You don’t need a lot of room to start an edible garden. You can grow food in smalls areas, using pots, window boxes and vertical trellises. Our popular Edible Gardens workshops introduced local households in the City of Sydney to the pleasures of gardening in small spaces.
