About Us

Grow Dynamix was created after we ran community classes teaching people how to grow their own food. The garden training courses were an instant hit and community members asked for more. From participant feedback we realised that people had a real hunger to learn practical skills in the garden in a relaxed and informal setting.

Grow Dynamix offers a range of garden training courses to teach people how to grow their own food and develop productive and thriving gardens.

At Grow Dynamix we believe in the educational principle that a “picture is worth a thousand words and a practical demonstration is worth a thousand pictures”. Our courses are fun, engaging and upskill participants through hands-on and practical training methods.

We are regularly asked the question “Where can I buy quality seed from?” In response to this we have decided to offer a range of tried and tested traditional and heirloom seed varieties which are suited to diverse Australian conditions.

We have been providing training locally and internationally in food security for 25 years in Thailand, Myanmar (Burma) and Uganda. We have first-hand experience of local and global trends in agriculture and food security and share this information through our presentations, workshops and training sessions. Food security affects everyone and is becoming one of the most challenging issues of the 21st Century.
