After reviewing multiple garden products to turn their balcony into an urban food oasis, the Port Philip Housing Association (www.ppha.org.au/) decided that a 3-Tier x 2-Bay Foodwall was the best solution. This is because of the space saving and reduced weight attributes compared to conventional wicking garden beds.
The Foodwall weighs significantly less than rock filled and large soil based raised gardens beds. This is achieved even with having 20 litres of water, 50 litres of potting mix storage and an advanced wicking tray per tub in the Foodwall.
The net weight (excluding water and potting mix) of this Foodwall is only 134 kg. Interestingly, that is the same amount of fresh food this Foodwall can produce the next 5 – 6 years!
Foodwall is ideal for balcony or rooftop installations.
