Vegepod Makes Growing Simple


Vegepod – A vegetable garden kit that makes growing simple!

Vegepod began eight years ago like any good invention, out of failure and necessity.  Matt Harris, inventor and CEO, tried like 80 percent of us at some stage in life to grow and harvest vegetables at home and again like the vast majority of those people, kept failing for a variety of reasons. Matt set out to construct a vegetable garden kit that could go anywhere and solve all problems in one solution. Thus the birth of Vegepod. Nine years on and Vegepods have finally made it to Canada.

Vegepod’s innovation and incomparable gardening success rates were then realised on a winning appearance on the Australian “Shark Tank” 2 years ago. Naomi Simson jumped on board as an investor and the show created a spike in awareness for growing vegetables with Vegepod in Australia.

It’s easy to set up, simple to fill and requires little ongoing maintenance. The ideal solution for the busy householder who wants a veggie patch but doesn’t have the time or effort required to build one. Not only is it easy and effective for the common householder but its fantastic for all ages and communities ranging from kindergartens, schools, aged care, disabilities and health care services. Programs have been developed or are currently under development for these specific sectors in the community which have been designed by Dr Kate Neale from the Southern Cross University and funded by the Australian Government in conjunction with Vegepod. The programs are designed to empower and engage the participants, develop life skills (build capacity), increase organisational sustainability, contribute to urban greenspaces, provide a potential avenue for micro-business / social enterprises and maximise the therapeutic benefits of gardening.

The benefits of gardening are well known. Wellbeing and resilience is linked to time spent in gardens. The benefits are both physical and spiritual/ emotional. Benefits include: lower anxiety, improved concentration, engaged senses, encouraged healthy eating and living, promotion of being active, development of fine and gross motor skills (if you’ve ever planted carrot seeds, you’ll know what we mean), social interactions with others, an increased sense of belonging, inclusion and connection to place.

In conclusion Vegepod is a solution for growing vegetables which makes it simple and easy for anyone, anywhere.
