Inner city vegetable gardening can be an overwhelming task at times. Many of us only have the space for a couple of quick herbs and chilis. However, a beautiful outdoor garden patch can be achieved! The Vegepod raised garden bed overcomes all the pain points of an inner city gardener by utilising space, portability, and plant protection easily. Here’s how.

The small Vegepod, particularly, is perfect for space saving and growing veggies on balconies, patios, and porches. Use the Vegepod stand or place the Vegepod on top of a shelf so you maximize the space underneath the bed.

Need to change your Vegepod’s position? The Vegepod comes with a wheeled stand option for those who need mobility and flexibility from their Pod. This is especially great for renters, the elderly, or anyone who needs to easily follow the sun, wind or rain around on your balcony or small backyard.
Pet Proof + Protection
One of the biggest pain points of an urban gardener is having to deal with protecting your plants from pests and animals such as birds, cats, and raccoons. Not to mention the strong winds that blow over your balcony! The Vegepod deals with all that by using a permeable mesh cover that’s breathable, allowing for soil aeration, light, and a 17% shade rate - all while keeping away the bugs.
Many urban gardeners are deficient in one area when it comes to gardening - time. The Vegepod helps you save it (and water) by being extremely water efficient. The raised garden bed uses a wicking bed design to water your plants from below. The Pod also has mist sprays that attach to the cover and produce a fine mist for your plants and seedlings. Set a hose timer to those sprays and you never have to worry about water again!
