How Did Your Garden Grow This Summer?
The Grow, Grow, Grow Your Own group originally began with a small group of people who were interested in the topic of Food Security. Food Security can be described as "people having availability and access at all times to sufficient, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life"

For the last 3years the group has received a grant from the Unley Council. Initially the grant was used to provide gardening/food kits to people in need. The initiative has now developed into free gardening workshops which are run 6 to 8 times a year. Topics for the workshops include container gardening, pruning fruit trees, creating a garden in small spaces, preserving produce, drying, pickling. Cooking, turning simple ingredients into meals.

The Grow, Grow, Grow Your Own group has together with the community established verge herb and vegetable gardens. If you live in the City of Unley Council area you may have seen some verge gardens growing.
