The Sydney Edible Garden Trail is back in 2022 and it is bigger than ever!!
What is the Sydney Edible Garden Trail?
The Sydney Edible Garden Trail is a once a year urban edible garden trail run throughout Metropolitan Sydney, celebrating the many ways that Sydney residents are creating food security, building self-reliance, saving money and the environment while enjoying the health benefits of homegrown fruit and veg. Their aim is to encourage and inspire growing edible produce in street gardens, home gardens and public spaces across Sydney (and it all started on the North Shore with the help of Lane Cove locals).
This community event showcases sustainable practices such as mulching for water conservation, recycling and composting to increase soil fertility and reduce landfill, planting to encourage bees, home food production to increase food security, and organic growing techniques to reduce chemical use. Learn about aquaponics, worm farms, wicking beds, banana circles, caring for poultry, companion planting, crop swaps and more.
It’s a community not-for-profit event where profits are used to provide grants to build and improve school and community edible gardens.
How Do You Get Involved?

The trail includes community gardens, school gardens and home gardens. You can visit as many gardens as you want during the two-day event. Last year the Mowbray Public School was one of the gardens available for people to visit.
The Edible Garden Trial is a 100% volunteer-run non-profit organisation. The Edible Garden Trail team is looking for help with posting on social media in the lead up to the trail in March and help with Grant Submissions (this is an ongoing role).
You don’t have to be an expert in either, just keen to lend a hand with a couple of hours free a week in the lead up to our annual event end of March.
