"We want to create a city that feeds itself, a giant edible ecosystem"
Who We Are
Back on an April Sunday in 2006 we got together with a few friends and helped transform a backyard based on permaculture principles into an edible oasis (see the pics!). That was the very first permablitz -- a day on which volunteers come together to install edible gardens, share knowledge, build community networks and have fun. It's a concept that's now gone global and continues to inspire us.

In 2008 we started Very Edible Gardens (VEG) so that these things which we were so passionate about could become our livelihood too.

We like to think of the gardens we help create as edible ecosystems, but it can start as simple as a single small veggie bed.
We know how rewarding it is to grow your own food, you just need to get your design right and follow a few key principles. It's genuinely exciting to us and we want to share that.
