The Edible Garden Trail is a celebration of the myriad ways Blue Mountains residents are creating food security, saving money and the environment, while enjoying the health benefits of homegrown fruit and veg.
Over the weekend of 16th and 17th October 2021, backyard growers, large and small, from Lapstone to Hartley, will open their gardens to the public to share their passion and knowledge and inspire self-reliance.
The focus of the 2021 Blue Mountains Edible Garden Trail will be growing indigenous edibles and learning to use native foods. Stay tuned for news of tours, workshops and more!

This is a community not-for-profit event, organised by Blue Mountains Food Co-op, with proceeds going to participating school and community gardens.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the Blue Mountains, the Darug and Gundungurra peoples, where the Edible Garden Trail takes place.
We acknowledge the deep care of, and connection to, country that sits at the heart of Aboriginal culture and we seek to build and nurture our community, and care for the land and rivers, with this long and significant history in mind. We pay our deep respects to elders past, present, and emerging and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.
Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
