Pocket City Farms

WaterUps® installed our first beds at Pocket City Farms in early 2019 as a trial. A few months later a further 11 timber beds were installed along the street frontage to grow leafy greens, fennel, and other small rooting vegetables. This allowed the farm to increase food yields.

Melbourne Food Hub

In November 2019, WaterUps® were installed at the Melbourne Food Hub, in the first commercial trial of our in-ground wicking beds system.

A recent collaboration with PlantingSeeds’ B & B Highway has resulted in a new application of our wicking beds in pollinator gardens. The B & B Highway – which stands for ‘Bed and Breakfasts for Bees, Birds and Biodiversity’ – is creating pollinator passageways across Sydney.
