In a recent survey of over 300 community members, we learnt that 50% of individuals either ‘don’t know how to start an edible garden’ and that 56% of individuals ‘don’t know how to maintain an edible garden’. We believe that everyone should have access to knowledge and simple information to enable more people in our community grow food at home.
One of our strategies to support this has been to team up with Casey Cardinia Library Service to increase opportunities to learn about edible gardening. CCL staff have put together their top book recommendations in three resources to grow your knowledge around:
When you borrow a book from the recommended list from one of the library services listed below, you’ll also receive a free packet of vegetable seeds!
- Bunjil Place
- Cranbourne Library
- Doveton Library
- Emerald Library
- Endeavour Hills Library
- Hampton Park Library
- Pakenham Library
You can head straight into your nearest library, or register your interest in our ‘Free Seeds’ initiative here.
And the learning doesn’t have to stop there. Let’s connect and grow together!
