The Growing at Home program is aimed at helping communities to have their own gardens at home, which could mean a small garden patch that has a few vegies mixed with flowers and some fruit trees.
The productions consist of posters and simple step by step growing instructions. They are designed to encourage the attitude of “let’s give it a go” when growing vegetables and fruit at home either on the communities or in urban areas.
The current productions are on banana, watermelon and pumpkin growing, but the collection will expand over the coming year to include many other interesting tips and crops.
Schools should also find these simple productions a useful tool in their school garden programs.
The NT Gardens website has been set up to promote and link remote community gardens and gardeners in the NT. Community and school gardeners can quickly and easily add their own garden page to the site with photos and video, see what other gardeners are doing, and contact one another. It is free and there is no advertising.

The page remains yours to keep free of charge.
The website is part of a Menzies School of Health Research project funded through a GPET Academic Post.
