MOUNT GAMBIER EDIBLE CITY
The Mount Gambier Edible City project aims to promote the development of Mount Gambier’s local food culture – encouraging residents to grow their own food, whilst supporting existing local food producers to connect with and educate the community.
The project will involve running a series of workshops focused on the various aspects of home food production – from the basics through to more involved topics. These will give people the skills to grow their own food.
The Mount Gambier Edible City team have put together a guide on which vegetables to grow and when in Mount Gambier and surrounds. the Planting Calendar is a useful tool to refer to at any time of the year and see which veggies you can get growing.
