Grow It Local
The City of Canning has partnered with Grow It Local to help educate and inspire more people to grow, share and eat. Growing your own food improves health and wellbeing of people, our communities and the planet. Some of the benefits include positive mental health and well being; access to healthy, fresh, nutrient-dense foods; increased physical activity, reconnecting with nature, stronger and more resilient communities and much more. Grow It Local is one of a number of local council initiatives designed to encourage positive sustainable living behaviour and food systems, in order to facilitate community building; support waste education; and divert organic waste from landfill.
