About this group

The Bunbury Urban Growers (BUG) group is a rapidly growing community of enthusiastic gardeners, keen to "grow their own edible produce" and to learn from others. Now on facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/Bunburyurbangrowers/

Are you growing food in your backyard? Looking for inspiration to make a start? Want to network with fellow urban gardeners? Keen to learn, be inspired and have fun?

The Bunbury Urban Growers group provides an opportunity for all "edible" gardeners to socialise with fellow like minded gardeners and share skills and knowledge as well as have questioned answered by other more experienced gardeners or permaculturist.

We organise informal tours of gardens in the Greater Bunbury area where local urban growers display how they are doing their bit for local food security. We also run mini practical garden workshops such as building wicking beds, compost making, etc and intend to shortly commence permablitzes (backyard blitz with a permaculture slant).

Typically, we enjoy a cuppa after our tours or mini-workshops and everyone is encourage to bring along something from their garden or kitchen to swap or give away, e.g. seeds, seedlings, fresh produce, worm wee, jams, preserve, recipes, etc.

The aim of the group is to …. "have an enjoyable time sharing and learning about growing our own edible food".

All for free!

BUG is proudly associated with Transition Bunbury, a community-based response to peak oil, climate change and global economic volatility. Visit www.TransitionBunbury.org.au for more information.
