Consultation has concluded.

Growing food in our suburbs takes many different forms. Whether it be growing your own food at home, connecting with other local gardeners, swapping produce, getting involved with a community garden - there's lots of different ways you can get involved. There's lots of benefits too, like getting access to fresh produce grown without chemicals, and connecting with other like minded people in your community.

Council would like to hear from our community around growing food in our suburbs. What are you up to? What would you like to do? How can Council help? This will help guide Council's future work in this area. So to start, we've created the survey below to get some feedback from our local residents. The survey has 11 questions and should take about 5 minutes to complete.

Please note the survey has now closed, and we are considering the results and what actions we might take from here.
