Garden To Plate - Edible Gardening Group

Planting the seed for young people to connect with nature and create a sustainable future.


RYSS is proud to present an amazing gardening program that reconnects young people with nature and the environment. Young people will learn about native plants, bush regeneration, gardening, health and wellbeing. The program focuses on bringing youth together fortnightly to participate in a range of horticultural activities, with the outcome being an edible garden for all to enjoy.

Program includes:

• Increase gardening skills and learn about native plants

• Enjoying the health benefits of home grown produce

• Building self-esteem and resilience in vulnerable youth

• Create opportunities for young people to connect with nature

• Increase youth ownership of public places

• Educate young people about healthy lifestyle choices

• Promote sustainability through garden practises.

The program will be led by Brenden Moore, a First Nations Community Greening Officer from the Botanic Gardens & Centennial Parklands. Brendan has qualifications in Horticulture, Aboriginal Studies as well as Community and Social Development.
