Fed Square’s car park rooftop has been transformed into a vibrant veggie garden in a joint initiative with Little Veggie Patch Co.
The Fed Square Pop Up Patch is made up of over 140 do-it-yourself veggie plots housed in individual recycled apple crates – the majority which are leased to the public. All the restaurants and cafes at Fed Square have their own plot, where they grow fresh ingredients to use in their daily menus.
You will also find a community demonstration veggie garden, shop and information centre in what will be Melbourne’s biggest community garden!
