The My Smart Garden program helps residents use their back yards, balconies or courtyards to live more sustainably by growing their own food, shading their home, recycling wastes and using water wisely.   As well as access to workshops, Moonee Valley and Hobsons Bay residents who sign up to the My Smart Garden program receive smart gardening information, discounts from local garden suppliers and can win great prizes every month. You could win a rain garden worth $500 in October and a Fowler’s preserving kit worth $250 in November.

If you live outside these council areas, you’re still welcome to attend workshops and sign up for the program, but ineligible for prizes.
