Grow it Local

When: Nov. 18, 2019

Grow it Local is setting off it’s second year by going national! The Grow It Local campaign to encourage householders to grow food at home, in backyards, on balconies, community gardens and even window sills started with the support of the 3-Council Regional program involving Waverley, Randwick and Woollahra Councils.

While the Great Aussie Bird Count wants everyone to think about planting native trees, shrubs and grasses to support our native birds and wildlife, Grow it Local wants you to intersperse those native and indigenous plants with a few edible herbs and veggies and get composting! But if you live in flats or units, don’t let that stop you - you can plant out in planter boxes or on window sills or look around for a community garden in your area!

By registering with Grow it Local you’ll be supported, educated, encouraged, connected and inspired by finding all those ‘locals’ around you that are also growing it local. The Grow it Local 2019 festival kicks off between November 18 and 27. Get involved, you’ll be surprised at the result!
