About us

Adam, Collin, Belinda, Brendon and Buddy Smiles (front).

Very Edible Gardens (VEG) is a permaculture design, education and gardening company based in Melbourne, Australia. The business has been going since 2008, and grew out of our volunteer work with the global permablitz network.

VEG Wicking Beds are happy to be one the pioneers of making the wicking bed concept accessible to everyone, not only in Australia through our installation services & DIY kits, but world wide through our informative how to videos. We believe in our products and services and through them we attempt to make meaningful change to gardens everywhere.

While we created this site to focus on our wicking bed offerings, you can check out our popular courses, permaculture design and other offerings over at the main VEG website.

Here’s a scattering of our previous clients and partners (we’ve worked with over 20 Melbourne councils!):
