We were both overwhelmed and excited by the response to the inaugural Growing Good Gardens Grant program.
Receiving 762 entries from schools and community groups across Australia, we are proud to announce the winners of the 2018 Growing Good Gardens Grants program alongside our partners, Yates® Gardening.
Whether a sensory garden, edible paddock to plate approach, or a garden that focused on indigenous foods, each winner will receive $1,000 from Yates® to help turn their garden dream into a reality.
