THE Tewantin-Noosa Garden Club are encouraging readers to take advantage of the free seeds being offered with the Sunshine Coast Daily.
Members Heather Lambert and Lisa Berry said growing your own produce and getting out in the garden was extremely enjoyable and something everyone should try.
"Getting out in the garden and in the fresh air is really good,” Ms Lambert said.
"Growing your own food, even if it's only herbs, is great because you've got your own fresh produce.”
Ms Berry said it didn't matter how many plants or how much space you had, everyone could grow something.
"I don't think it matters about what size or scale it's on, people can enjoy gardening no matter what,” she said.
"It's a great way to be outside and doing something productive and at the same time it's also a creative outlet.”
Ms Berry said the success of the garden could be better than expected.
"It's great exercise and really rewarding, and if you have a go you might even surprise yourself and have a great success and a bit of fun,” she said.
Ms Lambert said those wanting to know more about gardening could get involved in the garden club.
"Everybody's welcome,” she said.
"We have great trips to gardens and when we get together once a month we have an interesting speaker that teaches us about their special field.
"It's a great get together and way to learn things.”
She said it was also handy place to learn about what sort of soil and environment you should plant your free seeds in.
"We can teach you about the climate and soil you should grow your seeds in so you aren't disappointed.”
