The City of Marion is calling all green thumbs

The City of Marion is calling all green thumbs to Grow It Local this autumn with the first 50 residents scoring free organic seeds.

Attention all green thumbs! The autumn 2023 edition of the Grow It Local Seed Service has launched, thanks to a partnership between Green Adelaide and the City of Marion. The initiative is part of a nationwide effort to encourage more people to grow, share, and consume locally grown produce.

This edition of the Grow It Local Seed Service wants to help you recreate Costa Georgiadis grandma’s spanakopita, from your very own garden patch!

What’s on offer?

The first 50 residents to register will receive a Grow It Local Seed Service kit, which includes three packets of organic seeds delivered straight to their door. But that’s not all – participants will also have access to a range of comprehensive online video workshops, presented by the man himself, Aussie gardening icon, Costa. The videos will guide you every step of the way, from planting to harvesting, ensuring your garden is flourishing in no time.

But it’s not just about growing your own produce. The Grow It Local Seed Service is also about fostering a sense of community. Participants will have access to ongoing support and can connect with other gardeners, sharing tips and tricks to help each other out.

So what are you waiting for?

Register now to secure your spot in this fantastic initiative. The service is available until Friday 10 March, so don’t delay. Join the grow-together movement and get ready to cultivate your own garden patch.

To register, head to and get ready to watch your garden grow!
