Gardens for Harvest

The Gardens for Harvest program provides advice on growing your own fresh fruit and veggies and maintaining your food garden.

Gardens for Harvest program

Want to grow fresh fruit and vegetables but not sure where to start?

Already growing your own food but want to boost your harvest?

The Knox Gardens for Harvest program is run by the Sustainable Futures team in partnership with Yarra Ranges Council.

You'll learn:

  • which plants will grow best in your garden
  • how to grow and propagate them
  • how to use them in everyday cooking.

Reasons to grow your own food

  • Food fresh from your garden tastes better and has more nutrients.
  • Growing food at home reduces food waste, transport and packaging.
  • Gardening keeps us active and outdoors.
  • You control how your food is produced (without chemicals).
  • Your kids learn valuable life skills and know where food comes from.

Join Gardens for Harvest

Benefits of the program include:

  • a Gardens for Harvest e-booklet
  • invitations to gardening workshops and events
  • access to a monthly newsletter.
