Grow It Local in partnership with a network of forward thinking councils (see list below) have developed a FREE heirloom 'Seed Service’ to help educate, inspire and support more Australian’s to grow, share and eat locally grown food. The Seed Service has been designed by two of the greats of Australian edible gardening, Paul West (River Cottage Australia and ABC TV) and the gardening grand master himself Costa Georgiadis (Gardening Australia). For autumn 2023 we’ll be learning to grow three varieties of heirloom seeds together with Costa as your guide. They include; kale (Black Toscana), rainbow chard and spinach (Bloomsdale) Sign-up by clicking the ADD TO CART button at the bottom of the page. Once you've completed the sign up journey you'll receive a free package containing each of the three heirloom seed varieties and get exclusive access to instructional grow-along videos from Costa himself. The video content will provide a unique opportunity to learn and grow-along with one of Australia’s greatest gardeners, from patch to plate. The grow-along experience will culminate with Costa’s grandma’s famous spanakopita recipe. Yes, that’s right together we’ll learn how to grow and make Costa’s family spanakopita. It’s a seed-to-spanakopita adventure and best of all we're going to be growing along together! So join us and learn to grow Costa's spanakopita alongside a community of aspiring backyard, balcony, community garden and window-sill farmers across Australia. SEASONAL THEME To grow and ultimately cook Costa's grandma's famous Spanakopita recipe we'll be growing three varieties of heirloom seeds: - kale (Black Toscana) - rainbow chard - spinach (Bloomsdale) The grow-along experience will culminate with Costa’s grandma’s spanakopita recipe which we’ll learn to make together.

    I can't believe my suburb is not listed. As a matter of principle all council without exception should be involved and support such initiatives. We need to secure heirloom seeds and have that option to ingest food as intended.

    Would love to see this in Wollongong City Council / Berkeley area - there are a lot of poorer communities in the area, and this would encourage community engagement as well as helping less fortunate locals
