"When studies show that the average food basket has travelled some 70,000 kms, or around Australian’s coastline three times, before it gets to the consumer, using a staggering 16,989 tonnes of Co2, the benefits of growing your own food for the planet are huge."

"The Blue Mountains Edible Garden Festival and Trail is the brainchild of Wentworth Falls resident Susanne Rix, who has been growing food since she got her first little garden in the 1970s."
