Our GrowIt! project, which ran in 2011, aimed to bring food production back to where it belongs – the backyard. Participants purchased a fully installed and ready-to-grow vegetable box and were supported by workshops and fun events. By the end of the project, we had installed over 100 veggie plots around the community.

Through Grow It! we helped to:
  • reduce carbon emissions in food production and transport
  • capture carbon by building healthy soil
  • increase community connectivity by creating a new group of local home food producers
  • increase community resilience by bringing food closer to the kitchen
SCEG’s GrowIt! project was funded by the Victorian Government’s Climate Communities Programme.
