Dig It, Isaac is back!

After a hugely successful first year, we’re asking all of Isaac to get back to nature, in their own backyard.

Enter the Dig It, Isaac gardening competition by starting a new garden, finessing that lawn or completing a project that’s been sitting on the to-do list for a bit too long!

Entry categories are listed below. Winners will share in Shop Isaac gift cards and prizes to the value of $3050, with the major prize winner walking away with $1000 to spend at local Isaac businesses.

To take part, residents must spend at least $20 at a local Isaac business to help them create their very own backyard oasis.

Entrants have from 2 August to 19 September, close of business to complete their entry.

When your garden is ready to go, upload photos or videos of your project plus receipts from your local purchases at https://speakup.isaac.qld.gov.au/dig-it-isaac-gardening-competition

The Dig It Isaac panel will then judge entries and announce winners by Friday, 1 October.
