Biofilta completed our latest install at Poets Garden, Elwood which saw the installation of a massive 14 metre, 3 tier Foodwall system.
The existing garden is a wonderful community lead garden with raised beds. The raised beds take up a lot of area and only a certain amount are available for allocation to residents. The Foodwall allows space to be optimised by adding vertical wicking garden beds along a fence line.
This system will produce an additional 168kg of great organic produce per annum and has boosted the availability of gardening to lots more residents in the area.
Funding assistance was provided by the Port Phillip Council who really supports projects aimed at providing access to healthy food for their community.
The Poets Garden group were fantastic helpers and everyone pitched in to assist with the installation and provided a great lunch with fresh salad from the garden. It doesn’t get any better than that I can tell you.
Happy gardening at Poets Garden, Elwood.
