A healthy start to your year
Free seeds Queensland Government

New year, new and healthier you? Rediscover the lost art of growing vegetables at home. This free kit would also be perfect for doing some school holiday planting with the kids. And it is a great healthy way to kick-start the New Year by ensuring you have vegetables at your fingertips to make healthy dishes in the months ahead.

Your free seed pack includes cherry tomatoes, lettuce, spring onions, basil and carrots, as well as an easy-to-follow instruction booklet, with some DIY gardening tips and tasty suggestions to enjoy your harvest.

Some types are already mentioned such as 'Lettuce sativa' which apparently had fairly good tolerance to the Queensland sun and won't get bitter in hot weather. Lettuce is also a great source of folate and vitamin C.

Basil, as we all know is great for making pestos and matches with any dish that contains tomatoes. It is high in vitamin K, and a good source of manganese, and vitamin A.

Cherry tomatoes should be in hand in every kitchen. They make an easy snack. Just pop them in your mouth or use on homemade pizzas or salads.

Carrots are loaded with nutrients and again they make a healthy snack. Plus, they're a great source of fibre, potassium, vitamin A, C and vitamin K.

Spring onions can be cultivated all year round and are an excellent source of vitamin C and calcium.
