What size garden do you have? (approximately)


Learn how to grow your own vegies from seed and propagate some fruit trees and herbs using simple techniques. You’ll save a small fortune, access unusual varieties, and have surplus plants to share with your friends and family. There’ll be a special focus on common mistakes to avoid, and using free and upcycled materials, plus tips on making your own seed raising mix for better results.


Please note that this is an event for Naarm/Melbourne gardeners only. If you live outside this area, please contact your council to find out what free sustainable gardening events are available locally. 

If you have any access or support questions or requirements in order to participate fully (eg. interpreter), please let us know at least two weeks prior to the event and we will be pleased to assist you. Photos will be taken at this event, but there is an option to opt out on the day.

This My Smart Garden event is proudly presented by Hobsons Bay City Council on the land of the Bunurong people of the Kulin nation. My Smart Garden pays our respect to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledges that First Nations peoples have cared for Country sustainably for tens of thousands of years.
