Introducing The Little Veggie Patch Co Club

Like getting your hands dirty in the garden? Join a new online community devoted to gardening.

Growing your own fresh produce is the perfect way to slow down your daily life and remember to appreciate the simple things. Whether you’ve got a huge backyard to play with or just a few pots on your balcony, a veggie patch can bring some country feeling into your urban lifestyle, encouraging healthy eating and even fostering a sense of community.

That’s just what The Little Veggie Patch Co hopes to do with a new online gardening community, launched this month. Following on from the popularity of their two books, How to Grow Food in Small Spaces and A Guide to Backyard Farming, the Melbourne-based edible gardening company has created a member-based online community to further encourage people to grow their own produce, regardless of space and experience.

The Little Veggie Patch Co Club is a hub for people to learn, share and grow together. With articles, recipes, videos, DIY projects and guides all at their fingertips, members around Australia and the world can access a bounty of information about growing, harvesting, watering, composting, pests and seasonal and climate-specific topics.

“It’s about sharing our knowledge with a range of people, no matter where they are or what they know,” says The Little Veggie Patch Co’s Fabian Capomolla. “We want to embrace the brilliance of technology to help people get back into the garden and eating amazing homegrown produce”

To get a taste, check out the club teaser video or learn some one-minute gardening skills in hand pollination and making a DIY compost arerator.
