We love home gardening but community gardens are an amazing hub where everyone of all ages, cultural backgrounds and abilities are able to get into growing their own food, especially if they are limited on outdoor space in their own homes and are wanting to save on their grocery bill.
The Vegepod has been used successfully in many community gardens across the country but Adamama based at the Randwick Sustainability Hub NSW, have been using pods since early 2022 to provide their growing community with fresh herbs and veggies.
Adamama is Australia’s first ever Educational Urban Farm, inspired by Jewish values of healing the world and nurturing community. They run programs out of the Randwick Sustainability Hub, a beautiful space that includes a permaculture veggie garden, food forest, native bush tucker garden and more.
Their pods have allowed them to utilise paved sunny areas that would have otherwise stayed bare and provided accessible, inclusive gardening to their community in Sydney.
