Mullumbimby and New Brighton farmers markets are hosting free workshops next week to enable people to grow their own food.

The workshops teach participants how to turn their lawns in to instant no-dig food gardens.

The workshops are being held as part of the region-wide Think Global, Eat Local campaign being run by Sustain Northern Rivers this month, which aims to increase the number of locals eating locally produced food as well as improving the viability of farming in the region.

The no-dig garden workshops will be held on Tuesday, 28 May, at New Brighton Farmers Market and on Friday 31 May at Mullumbimby Farmers Market.

Markets coordinator Allie Godfrey said the workshops give people the opportunity to not only come to the markets for their fresh produce, but to learn something that they can instantly apply in their everyday lives. ‘We are lucky that this region has such high-level experts who are passionate about local food, gardening and improving health through eating,’ Ms Godfrey said.
