What is the Sydney Edible Garden Trail?
This two-day self-guided tour celebrates the many ways that Sydney residents are creating food security, building self-reliance, saving money and the environment, whilst enjoying the health benefits of homegrown fruit and vegetables. Several Lane Cove gardens will be participating in the Trail along with gardens in Ku-Ring-Gai, Willoughby, Ryde, Hornsby and North Sydney council areas.
Week-end tickets to visit around 50 private, school and community gardens are just $25 per adult with family tickets (2 adults, 3 children) at $50 and children just $5. All proceeds will go to building new community and school edible gardens. Winners of the grants from 2020 ticket sales can be seen here.
Tickets to the event would make a great Christmas Gift!!!
Do It in IRL or Virtual
Sadly, the 2020 Trail had to be taken online with 4 days’ notice after COVID-19 hit. However, the Virtual Sydney Edible Garden Trail was so successful that it is running again on February 27 and 28, 2021. Costa Georgiadis, gardening ambassador extraordinaire will again be live streaming to a private Facebook group from several gardens over the Virtual Trail weekend.
With tickets to the Virtual Sydney Edible Garden Trail at just $5, ticket holders are able to view and interact with the live feeds and view the videos for several months after the event.

Hosts will be provided with a ‘how-to’ pack of useful information, including signage and banners and inviting them to a ‘pre-trail’ event prior to the weekend so that they can meet each other.
The Sydney Edible Garden Trail are also on the lookout for sponsors for the event to help with some of the running costs. So if there are any Lane Cove locals who might be interested, please do get in touch.
