It’s time for the ultimate summer growing competition – lets see your best Snake Bean creations!

Thanks to our friends at Hume and Iser Mitre 10 and Yates, we have 100 Snake Bean packets to distribute to get you growing!

Have some fun and grow them in the most creative way possible. Snake Bean cubby? Snake Bean vine? Snake Bean pictures? The choice is yours!

Share photos with us throughout, then, when they’ve matured after 8-10 weeks – send a photo of your entry to us and our team of expert gardeners will award a prize to the most creative design. The winner gets a gardening hamper.

After you have harvested your snake beans, feel free to share part of your harvest with your neighbours or bring them back to us at Bendigo Foodshare to help us feed everyone in the community!

Send us a message at to arrange collecting your seedlings, and tag your friends below to get involved – we can’t wait to see what you come up with! Follow us on Facebook for updates and inspiration!
