Welcome to the Yates Growing Community

This community blog is a place for gardeners to come together to share their successes, problems and aspirations while having fun growing. We’ll have different challenges to make life interesting along the way.

The current challenge is the Vegie Growing Challenge 2020. It’s open to all skill levels including newbies – you just need a passion for gardening and a willingness to share your journey. To take part just click on the green box “My Blogs” above.
