Welcome to the Vegie Growing Challenge

The Vegie growing Challenge had its 11th year in 2020 and quickly became a tight knit community of keen gardeners supporting each other as they gardened together virtually in a challenging year.  Over the years hundreds of keen gardeners have shared their garden journeys and many have won some fabulous prizes.   The Challenge has changed a lot since those early days but the kindness of the gardeners and ups and downs of a spring garden is always the same and continues to be something to look forward to.   So, keep an eye out for the start of a new Vegie Growing Challenge at the start of spring 2021.
