SOUTH Gippsland has been described as “heaven on earth” in an episode of ABC TV program Gardening Australia that aired at the weekend.

Local council horticulturist Paul Robinson and his team’s flourishing kerbside garden beds starred in a six-minute segment filmed in Foster earlier this year and aired last Friday night.

Thoroughly impressed by the colourful and abundant edible gardens dotted around Foster’s main street, presenter Millie Ross congratulates Paul and his crew for “taking street food to a whole new level”.

Familiar faces such as Foster Pharmacy staff also feature in brief interviews.

For those who missed it, the episode is now available to stream via ABC iview.
