From the creators of the fantastic Garage Sale Trail comes a new community initiative encouraging people to grow, share and eat local foods! Grow It Local - Your Local Grow Community connects all kinds of growers, including those with backyard veggie patches, window sill plants and balcony boxes!
This community initiative aims to connect local growers through an online system where growers can 'put their patch on the map'! You can give your patch a name, outline what you're growing and connect with other local growers to share or sell produce, chat about gardening and contribute knowledge!
The City of Cockburn is the first WA council to jump on board to support the program and will be launching with the Grow It Local Festival. The festival will take place across the 4th to the 10th of November in and around Cockburn, where there will be both free and ticketed knowledge-sharing events!
There is the opportunity to attend a wide range of fun events including a Beautiful Breakfasts Workshop, Cutting Kitchen Waste, a Long Table Degustation Dinner and a Garden Tour & Tasting (and much more!).
Check out the events on offer and register your patch here.
