A virtual tour of six inspiring Adelaide edible gardens.

Welcome to the Adelaide Edible Garden Trail 2021

The Adelaide Edible Garden Trail celebrates the many ways Kaurna Land residents are creating food sovereignty while saving money and the environment — and enjoying the health benefits of homegrown fruit and veggies.

For this first-time 2021 event, six backyard growers are opening their gardens to you via informative online video tours (links below!), sharing their knowledge and inspiring you to get growing at your place.

The tours showcase sustainable garden practices for South Australia’s local growing conditions, including water conservation, composting, increasing soil fertility, planting to encourage beneficial insects, home food production and organic growing techniques.

Watch all six edible garden tours

Wagtail Urban Farm, Mitchell Park

Founded by Steven Hoepfner, Wagtail is Adelaide’s only microscale market garden, producing loads of organic veggies from a tiny suburban block.

Monique Collins, Glenelg North

Monique’s formal edible garden is especially inspiring as she had little gardening experience when she first set up this beautiful and orderly patch just a few years ago.

Suburban food forest, Forestville

This 15-year-old food forest at a rental property, currently stewarded by Emily Gray-Bugg and Lachlan McKenzie, is based on permaculture principles.

Ligaya Garden, Gawler South

The tiny food garden that could. Created by the Haines family on just 60sq m, this patch produces a wide variety of food, as well as aquaponics and medicinal herbs.

North Brighton Community Garden

This beautiful, well-thought-out shared space was founded by Alex Miller, who is possibly the youngest community garden organiser in Australia.

Shared street garden, Adelaide CBD

Led by Jane Copeland and her neighbours, this tiny communal veggie patch in the south-east corner of the city is a brilliant example of hyper-local community connection.
