Why you should grow your own produce
Growing your own fruit, herbs and vegetables is much more sustainable than buying them from the supermarket as it means less food waste, no packaging and zero transport emissions.
Your produce can also be organic as you control the amount of pesticides you use (if any at all).
There are plenty of ways to add greenery to your home and grow your own food even if you don’t have an outdoor space.
One option is to place pots on your windowsills and plant your own herb seeds and vegetables seeds. Keeping these near the kitchen means fresh herbs will be readily available to add to any meal.
Seasonal herbs and vegetables
Each season brings different climates, so it’s important to know what herbs, fruit and vegetables to grow during different times of the year.
Different regions in Australia also have different climates, so it’s good to know what will grow best where you live.
