The Little Veggie Patch Co is a local business dedicated to helping people grow food regardless of skill-set or space.
The business began in 2008 as a little company that installed raised garden beds and larger edible gardens in people’s homes.
Since then installations have moved towards a style of smaller space gardening; taking on the ideas of permaculture and combining them with the constraints of space and time. Quickly, the raised garden beds became recycled apple crates and the veggie crates have become a product tied to the identity of the business ever since.
In 2009, first range of heirloom seeds was released, starting with four varieties of tomato.
The range now has over 50 varieties.
In 2011, ‘How to grow food in small spaces’ was released & has become the best-selling gardening book in Australia. 4 more books have been published since then, with the most recent title 'Grow Food Anywhere'.
As the demand for locally grown, better-tasting food grows, The Little Veggie Patch Co continues to grow alongside it.
