INCREDIBLE EDIBLE GARDENS
Vegepod is one of the country’s newest gardening innovations allowing people to easily and successfully grow their own vegetables.
Vegepods mission is to enable everyone to grow some of their own produce at their home or community space, wherever the location and whatever the situation, be that a balcony, backyard or community garden. They believe everyone should not only gain from the obvious physical benefits of fresh organic produce, but also the mental and emotional well-being rewards.
The Vegepod makes growing your own veges easy by overcoming the key challenges you often face – mainly the watering requirements and the bugs!
Vegepods unique self-watering system captures and stores rainwater which plants can access continually from below. Therefore, you don’t need to remember to water your garden for weeks and you use 80% less water than a normal vege patch.
The protective cover keeps out pests and animals such as white butterfly, slugs, cats and birds and reduces the need for weeding. The cover also creates a warmer greenhouse micro-climate allowing you to grow year round.
Vegepods come in three sizes and are available in 45 independent stores nation-wide. Optional features include winter covers, stands and trolleys. All the materials are food-safe and the simple assembly requires no tools. Everything is also conveniently flat packed to fit in any size car.
