Be part of Grow it Local, a unique initiative to encourage edible gardening in the Eastern Suburbs, brought to you by Council and the award-winning team behind Garage Sale Trail.
This program aims to:
- increase participation in edible gardening
- shine a light on existing growers in the local area
- connect communities
- share knowledge, and

There will be great opportunities to share your garden secrets and troubles, connect and learn from others, showcase your edibles and win awards.
