There are many reasons to get out in the garden, the physical activity from gardening makes it a great exercise and it can be good for helping reduce stress. Also produce from your garden provides fresh healthy food for you and your family.
If you don’t have space at home, you could connect with a community garden in your area. Community gardens are a great way to meet your community, learn gardening skills and share produce.
Wyndham City is a participating Council of My Smart Garden a free sustainable gardening program that helps you get started growing food and transforming your outdoor space (yards, balconies or pots) into a beautiful, functional garden.
Sustainable Gardening Australia (SGA) has produced a booklet Home Harvest in Wyndham. The booklet has been customised for Wyndham making it relevant for our local soils, microclimates, native vegetation and local garden businesses.
