Following a fantastic ‘launch’ yesterday attended by over 250 people in Wollongong, the Illawarra Edible Garden Guide is now here for all to see!
You can now download a free PDF version by clicking on the cover icon on the right hand side of our homepage. If you live in the Illawarra, you can also pick up a free hardcopy from the admin buildings of Wollongong, Shellharbour or Kiama Councils. We’ve created the guide in partnership with the three local Councils, through the Illawarra Biodiversity and Local Food Strategy for Climate Change project, which has funding support from the NSW Environmental Trust. There’s also a brilliant new Grow Local: Illawarra Native Garden Guide, which is a wonderful ‘sister’ booklet to the food guide.
We think the 47 page booklet looks pretty fantastic – many thanks to the talented Bettina for her amazing graphic design work! It’s packed with photos not only from our garden, but other gardens in the Illawarra including some of our fantastic local community gardens. Though the focus is Illawarra specific, no matter where you live, we hope you find it an inspiring taste of growing food in the suburbs!
