Sustainable Cuisine

Plants! Edible Plants!

Grow your own food with our selection of edible plants perfect for the subtropical climate of the Sunshine Coast!

Come visit out custom built (made locally on the Sunshine Coast...just sayin') trailer that holds about 300 plants! Find us at the Food & Farm Expo!

 

“We believe that culinary plants for sale at most retail nurseries don’t suit the Sunshine Coast climate (most sell seedlings of European crops that struggle through our seasons). We get NOVICE gardeners growing their own food, in even the tiniest of spaces and with modest of gardening experience. We love TEACHING people and letting them try new things. We'd love to see everyone producing their own sustainable backyard harvests! - Sustainable Cuisine
