Best ever fun, educational day out for gardeners

Increase your food growing skills and knowledge

The Edible Garden Trail offers a once-a-year unique opportunity to prowl about the yards of passionate gardeners. And, at a time when fresh food is more expensive than ever, it's a great way to combine a fun day outdoors and an educational experience that will reap ongoing rewards.

While edible gardens have been popping up all over the place (in fact, the Blue Mountains trail inspired Sydney's) the Blue Mountains version is a helpful showcase of how to grow food in a cooler climate.

At the Blue Mountains Edible Garden Trail, you can:

  • See examples of food growing, composting and more

  • Learn how to grow food

  • Visit gardens of all sizes - both small and large

  • Get ideas for your own garden

  • Learn how to be more self-reliant, sustainable and food secure

  • Learn what grows well in cool climates

  • Get some opportunities to ask questions

  • Get a few opportunities to purchase products such as seedlings, plants or foods

    Excitingly, the focus of this year's edible garden trail is indigenous foods (how to grow and use them)!! I can't wait.

    See below for all the need to know.
