My Smart Garden is a free program offered by Hobsons Bay and Moonee Valley City Councils to help residents:

  • grow food
  • shelter your home from the sun and wind
  • create homes for local wildlife
  • use water wisely
  • recycle wastes

My Smart Garden has something for everyone and is simple, easy and fun. It has been designed so that you can ‘choose your own gardening adventure'.

As a Smart Gardener you will:

  • receive advice at free workshops and events
  • lower your food, energy and water costs
  • access discounts from local gardening suppliers
  • connect with other gardeners
  • be rewarded for active involvement

A Smart Garden promotes a different type of garden: one that will help you adapt to the hotter days and more variable rainfall as a result of our changing climate. No matter whether you have a backyard, balcony or courtyard, you can benefit from gardening more sustainably.

This program is chiefly aimed at people living in either the Hobsons Bay, Moonee Valley or Maribyrnong City Council areas. If there are free places two days prior to an event anyone interested can register to attend.
