Recently divorced, Julia Carter plans to sell her house on Sydney's north shore and start a new life in the city. But when her grandmother dies, she reluctantly agrees to move to Northport on the north coast of New South Wales with her beloved grandfather. Julia unexpectedly falls in love with a rural property and has just signed the sale contract for Riverview when tragedy strikes again. Shocked and grieving, Julia finds herself alone in an unfamiliar environment and, thanks to a legacy from her grandparents, at the centre of a battle between developers and various local groups over a proposed luxury resort. The pressure of making the right decision about the development weighs heavily on Julia as she begins to build a new life and new friendships. Can she resist the pressure from both sides and make her own choices for the first time in her life? Is there a possibility of love at last? Will Julia flourish like her crop of lemongrass? The Lemongrass Project shows that it's never too late to take a chance, explore new possibilities and be true to yourself.
