Media Release: Grow it local impact report 2023


Hope this msg finds you well and that the sun is shining on your patch.

My name is Darryl Nichols and one of the cofounders of Grow It Local alongside my good friend and colleague Paul West who I imagine you likely know?

Grow It Local is a mission to get more Australian’s growing and eating locally grown foods.

What began as a grass roots initiative in Bondi Beach has evolved into a truly national movement supported by 31 local councils, 3 state / territory governments and partnerships with leading environmental brands Seasol and Patagonia.

Our community encompasses 30,000+ members across Australia and I’m writing to let you know that we’ve just released the Grow It Local Report – 2023.

The Grow It Local Report highlights the positive impacts of growing food in communities across Australia.

We figured the findings may be of interest to HMAA members and hence this msg to say hi, introduce ourselves and the impact report too.

The report is published annually and as we understand is the longest running study of its kind on the impacts of home growing across the nation.

If interested I’ve attached a media release and Grow It Local Report for your reference and usage.

Please lettuce know if you’d be interest a interview with Paul or our national patron Costa?
