Little Veggie Patch are supplying 176 veggie crates, each filled with their special no-dig garden mixture. Fed Square is supplying the space.
Each crate will act as a garden bed and is about 1.2m x 1.2m x 70 cm. They can be leased (in the same way a bed in a regular community garden can be) by individuals. It costs $3.50 per day, about the same as a coffee.
Opening on the 12th of October, the Patch is still being prepared...
The urban garden will be well secured, with staff present, and willing to help you, 8 hours a day. Subscribers will be able to enter through the locked gate while the garden is unmanned, from 6am until 10pm.
Plenty of time no matter how hectic your day job is. In fact, due to the super central location, (near the car pack at the back of Fed Square) you can pop down and do a spot of gardening during your lunch break.
