Vegie patch in the sky

Freshwater Place has found an interesting way to use previously discarded space on the side of the building, converting a disused balcony into a vegetable garden for residents.

On the same level of the building as the half acre green space, the garden was installed to give residents a chance to try out their green thumb.

Resident Lindy Capelli said it was a great use of the space and provided a unique opportunity within Southbank to maintain a hobby like growing plants.

“One of the biggest lifestyle changes resulting from the move into high-rise apartments is the loss of a garden,” she said.

“The Garden Club is a great initiative, open to everyone, it gives Freshwater residents the opportunity to get together as a community and enjoy the benifits of planting, tending and harvesting an edible garden.”
