VERTICAL VEG ENCOURAGES FOOD PRODUCTION



Vertical Veg is an owner-run SME which manufactures artisanal hanging planters to encourage people to grow their own herbs, vegetables and plants. The product components are locally sourced and all products are hand-made. The company believes that vertical gardens are the solution to the lack of space for food-growing in inner city areas. They encourage organically grown, pesticide free produce.


In this era of climate change, the company points out that:

  • nurturing a plant and seeing it grow into something one can harvest is an invaluable exercise for social interaction, community and survival;

  • growing one’s own food and respecting the environment teaches appreciation for all forms of life;

  • even small amounts of produce add value and healthy ingredients to one’s culinary endeavours;

  • it is important for people to understand how nature and the environment are interconnected and essential for survival.
