What We Do at Vital Veggies

Check out how we transformed an Urrbrae back yard into a productive food garden here and stay up to date with all the latest food gardening news on our Facebook page .

At Vital Veggies we install food and vegetable gardens, empowering people to grow food in their own backyards. At the community level, we help to set up community gardens and install food gardens in kindergartens and schools, providing educational outcomes for the entire community around Adelaide South Australia.

Vital Veggies are experts at growing food naturally, organically and biodynamically. The founder Roger Carthew is Chair of the Board of Biodynamic Agriculture Australia and has a wealth of farming and food growing experience. Read more about Roger here.

Vital Veggies provide creative design solutions that transform conventional gardens into gorgeous foodscapes. By incorporating land care principles into all of our food garden designs, we create harmonious living areas that have sustainable gardening practices at their core.

No job is too big or too small. We cater for all landscaping situations with the sole objective of transforming them into beautiful food producing gardens for you. Our equipment and our team will quickly and efficiently clear and level areas and prepare them for the installation of your food garden.

We specialise in making and installing raised bed gardens. Have a look at our range here. We'll also install automatic irrigation so you don't have to worry about watering your veggies.

Our specially blended soil is one of the secrets to growing an abundance of nutrient dense fruit and veggies. If you have a veggie garden that isn't producing well, your soil may need replenishing or replacing. Read more about our super soil here.

Following installation of your food garden we can visit fortnightly to help you care for your garden and provide expert advice. Click here for our current servicing plans.

We love sharing the stories and images of all the gardens we've transformed. Visit our Portfolio page here to view our work and read the lovely stories behind the images. You'll be inspired.

Vital Veggies publishes a FREE monthly newsletter full of veggie gardening tips, latest research, planting reminders, kid's gardening projects and more. Please subscribe to our newsletter here.

Our website has extensive information about how to grow your own food. Please contact us by phone or email to discuss what we can do to help you. You could be eating super nutritious home grown veggies from your own garden very soon.

We make growing food easy for you!
