From Concrete to Carrots, Pop Up Veggie Patch

Federation Square’s car park in Melbourne has been transformed into a vibrant veggie garden! The pop-up patch, which is a joint initiative with The Little Veggie Patch Co., allows city dwellers the opportunity to get their green thumbs dirty with over 176 DIY veggie pots housed in recycled apple crates.

These pots are the gateway to apartment folk’s gardening dreams, allowing veggie enthusiasts to subscribe to a patch on a yearly basis with a monthly fee. For your flowering interest, subscribers will receive expert advice and training from Little Vegie Patch Co. as well as seasonal seed packs, a copy of the Little Vegie Patch Co gardening book, access to the pop-up patch tool shed, and exclusive online content.

“Having fun and enjoying the full range of activities from gardening, harvesting, preparing food and, of course, eating fresh produce is what veggie growing and the Fed Square pop-up patch is all about,” say Little Veggie Patch Co. owners, Matt Pember and Fabian Capomolla.

The site will also boast a community demonstration veggie garden and information centre for the public and local schools. “It’s another great addition to a series of events and activations that take the food experience at Fed Square to the next level,” says Kate Brennan, CEO of Fed Square.
