Gardens for Harvest

Community garden overlooking Mt Dandenong

Would you like to grow your own fresh vegetables and fruit at home and not sure where to start?
Are you already growing your own food and would like to learn more to increase your harvest?

Gardens for Harvest is a program for Knox residents. It aims to help build skills and knowledge in how to grow your own fresh fruit and veggies and how to maintain a veggie garden.

The Gardens for Harvest program is run by the Sustainable Futures team of Knox City Council.

Why grow your own fresh food at home?

  • Food harvested fresh from your garden tastes better - and it has increased nutrient levels!
  • Growing food at home reduces food waste, transport and packaging.
  • Gardening is a great hobby that keeps us active and outdoors
  • Growing your own food means you can be in charge of how your food is produced (eg chemical free)
  • Getting your kids involved in growing food for your family will help them to learn about where food comes from and assists with development of many life skills.

Join our FREE Gardens for Harvest program

It only takes a couple of minutes to sign up online and members will receive:

  • A welcome kit, which includes a copy of our Gardens for Harvest guide book, 'What to Plant When' guide and local nursery guide.
  • Invitations to workshops on various gardening topics.
